Windows 7 (32 bit) & FORTRAN

  1. Sep 3, 2010 #1
    Hello all,

    Although I am currently working on implementing FORTRAN on my Mac, I would also like to find a compiler that works well with Windows 7 32-bit. I initially had Win7 64-bit installed on my computer, but when I went to use my (really old) DIGITAL Visual Fortran install disk, it said it was incompatible. It had been working with Windows XP just fine. So I reinstalled Win7 32-bit. The install went smoothly so I thought I was all set. However, upon opening Visual Fortran, I get a series of error to the effect of "ThisFile not found." My friend had same problem and said the only way he was able to fix it was to run XP. I really rather not, since I already bought Win7 and I am finally getting used to it.

    Are there any FORTRAN compliers out there for Win7 that are comparable to Visual Fortran? It is very similar to all of the other "Visual" products (i.e. editor, workspace, all in one spot ... kind of like Matlab).

    Hey Borg!

    No I have not. I had thought that was only available on the professional or ultimate version. I have home, bit will look into it and post back.

    Hi Saladsamurai,

    I think that you might be correct on that. I had a laptop for a short time this year with the Windows 7 home edition on it and it was lacking a lot. If I remember correctly, XP Mode is free but it only runs on Professional or better like you said. They charge around $100 to upgrade it to the Professional version so you don't have to buy a completely new CD.
