Visual Studio* Integration

Support for Microsoft* Visual Studio* 2017 is deprecated as of the Intel® oneAPI 2022.1 release, and will be removed in a future release.

Intel® Inspector integrates into the Visual Studio* integrated development environment (IDE) and can be accessed from the menus, toolbar, and Solution Explorer in the following manner:

The menu, toolbar, and Solution Explorer offer different ways to perform many of the same functions.


Use the Tools > Intel Inspector [version] menu to create analysis results; compare results; and import result archive files, results not associated with a project, and results from other Intel error-detection products into the current project.


Use the Intel Inspector toolbar to open the Getting Started page, create analysis results, compare results, and configure projects.


Solution Explorer context menus (right-click to open):

  • Use the Intel Inspector [version] menu on the Solution Explorer project context menu to create analysis results and configure projects.

  • Use the context menu on a result in the project result folder to open results, create analysis results, refinalize (re-resolve) results, export result archive files, and manage results.
