Am I supposed to download an evaluation copy of one of the compiler products in order to get the license number and if so which one:
Or something else?
The sticky post under Your MCPC says to request license numbers from email@example.com. I will then send you the license numbers. Please do not download evaluation copies. The compiler bits you need come from our public SVN and they are specifically configured for SCC use. All I need through that mail address is the number of licenses, email addresses, and the name of the PI. The bits from the public SVN can be installed without a license but the compiler will not work without one.
I'm worried that you are not looking at the right file. Section 5 does say where to get a license ... namely that email address.You want the directions in ....
Sometimes old docs stay on the website longer than they should and cause trouble.
Section five could be clearer:
...you should request an additional icc license number by sending their name, email address, affiliation, and PI name to firstname.lastname@example.org.
That clarifies how you get the license number mentioned in the previous and follwing paragraphs.
