Install Packages or Components to Different Directories
Intel oneAPI installer supports side-by-side installation. It means that you can install multiple instances of toolkits/components to different directories on the same machine. Each instance is a separate installation entity with its own isolated environment. Product installed in one instance is not visible in another instance.
With multi-instance installation, you can:
Install a newer version of a toolkit/component without removing the previous one
Install toolkits to different directories other than default
Have multiple instances of the same version of a toolkit/component installed
To install a package into a specific instance, use the following command:
sudo sh ./l_[Toolkit Name]Kit_[version].sh -a -s –eula=accept –-install-dir=<custom-install-dir> --instance=<instance ID>
./l_[Toolkit Name]Kit_[version].sh -a -s –eula=accept –-install-dir=<custom-install-dir> --instance=<instance ID>
<custom-install-dir> is the directory where you want to install a specific instance to
<instance ID> is a unique combination of alphanumeric symbols that designate an instance, for example my-custom-instance-1
For instructions on how to uninstall product(s) from a specific instance, refer to Uninstall Using Silent CLI.
