I am trying to use Environment Manager to compile my Fortran code. I have PSSE 34.8. I already installed Intel Visual Fortran and Visual Studio 2015. However, when upload my files, I cannot compile them.

I see under the Fortran Compile Options in red color:

Not Allowed - Link: 34 (Why?).

When I press (Why?), I get the following error message:

    Link not allowed for PSSE versions: 34

    Installed Visual Studio versions:

        14.0 (VS 2015), 14.0 (VS 2015)
         [32 bit] PATH/LIB files not found for Visual Studio 14.0 (VS 2015):    

        [64 bit] PATH/LIB files not found for Visual Studio 14.0 (VS 2015):    

Installed Intel Fortran Compiler versions:
            IVF 15.0.148, IVF 15.0.148

Installed Compaq Fortran Compiler versions:


     Refer C:\****\.pssenvmgr\psse_env_manager.log file for details.

      If contacting PSSE Support for resolution of this error, please send this log file.

What is the problem? Can anyone help? Did anyone face a similar issue? How did you solve it?

If you download the latest PSSE environment manager, it should be solved. The latest version is 9.1.1 (you can download it without needing the latest PSSE version) and supports the ONEAPI HPC toolkit that includes the fortran compiler (for the older ivf you need to buy a licence but intel does not support it or sell it anymore) which is downloadable for free.

It's always a good idea to go to the PTI PSSE Model Library Request page and asks for support on any issue. It's usually how i can find my answers (including the one i've given you).

Good luck!

The Fortran version and Visual Studio version need to match the PSSe version. If reinstall did not solve the problem, first try to install Visual Studio version 13.

Hi jconto,can I ask you where to find and download Intel Visual Fortran? I'm just starting to learn how to write the UDM and try to compile the fortran code to dsusr.dll by Environment manager. I already install the VS 2013 but still can't found where can download the IVF 15.0.221. thanks

Search for 'Intel Fortran' on the internet to find the Intel site where to purchase.

Very appreciate of your reply. I still wondering, without using EM can I use the latest Visual Studio & Intel fortran compiler(installed by "Intel oneAPI HPC Toolkit") to make the dsusr.dll? thanks your answer.

Using EM is the easiest path. Each PSSE version requires specific Visual Studio and Intel Fortran versions and outside this recommendation it becomes a try & error process.
