Issue

The Intel® System Studio 2016 supports native Android development using the Intel® C++ Compiler with Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015 (VS2015) IDE. In order to use the Intel® C++ Compiler for Android within VS2015 IDE, it is required to customize the VS2015 installation. The required steps can be found in the Solution part of this document.

If the required features are not installed before installing Intel® System Studio 2016 one of the following error messages will be displayed:

Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015 Cross Platform Mobile Development feature is not installed.

Installation can continue; however, support for "Intel® C++ Compiler for Android*" in Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015 will not be enabled during installation. You can enable it later. See this online article for details (link to this article). The compiler can still be used from command line and within Eclipse*.

Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015 does not have "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015" components installed.

Installation can continue; however, Intel® C++ Compiler will not build using Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015. Please see (https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-c-fortran-compilers-for-windows-integration-into-microsoft-visual-studio-2015) online article for information on configuring Microsoft Visual Studio* 2015 for Visual C++ development.
