Selecting your Compiler When Calling Pre-Compiled Objects and Libraries

When PSCAD projects will be calling any pre-compiled objects or libraries, a compatible compiler must be selected for running your project.

The following may be considered for your selection.

1. For Both Types of Compilers

When using either GFortran or Intel Fortran/Microsoft Visual Studio, a compatible compiler may be selected as specified in Chart 3.a of the Compatibilities Charts document, posted here.

2. For Intel Fortran/Microsoft Visual Studio only

If any of the pre-compiled objects or libraries contain c-code, due to an update as of Visual Studio 2015:

  • Files pre-compiled with Visual Studio 2013 and earlier may not be run using Visual Studio 2015 and later.
  • Files pre-compiled with Visual Studio 2015 and later may not be run using Visual Studio 2013 and earlier.

This is specified Chart 3.b of the Compatibilities Charts document, posted here.

If any of the pre-compiled objects or libraries do not contain c-code, the limitation in Step 2 above is not present.
