LF Fortran  

Installing the Visual Studio 2010 Shell

The LF Fortran Visual Studio Integration may be used with a purchased Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Standard © edition (or higher), or with the free Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell © available for download from www.lahey.com. If Visual Studio 2010 is already installed on your PC, you may skip this page and proceed directly to Installing LF95 with Visual Studio Integration.

To install the Visual Studio 2010 Shell

Note: When installing on Windows Vista ©, Windows 7 © or newer, User Account Control (UAC) may occasionally display a permission dialog that is hidden behind other dialogs on the desktop. This may happen if you look at some other window, and the installer dialog loses focus. You can tell this is happening when the UAC taskbar item is flashing, and the installation dialog seems to be in a wait state. Clicking on the taskbar item will bring the UAC dialog to the front, and installation can continue when you dismiss the dialog.

Before starting, review the System Requirements.

Administrator rights are required for installation.

Note: The installation of the Visual Studio Shell can take a significant amount of time.

    The installer is now ready to begin installing Visual Studio. If you wish to change any setting made so far, use the "Previous" button to back up. Otherwise, press "Install" to begin installing files.

  5. When the installation is done, a message will appear indicating that the installation is complete:
