Download Microsoft SDK
Windows users need a version of the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) on their system before installing PGI Compilers & Tools. The Windows SDK is normally installed as part of Microsoft Visual Studio. If it is not yet on your system, pick the SDK you need from the table below based on the product you are installing and your version of Windows. If you are installing multiple PGI product versions, you may need more than one SDK.
