Fix Nvidia / PGI compiler error required tool link was not found

NOTE: PGI compilers were replaced by Nvidia HPC SDK in August 2020.


Windows Nvidia / PGI compilers require Visual Studio. Visual Studio has frequent upgrades. Visual Studio upgrades can change the directory link is available under, usually under

c:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio/2019/Community/VC/Tools/MSVC

We have found the quickest fix is to reinstall PGI. Trying to soft-link directories under the directory above didn’t help.

NOTE: The “Repair” option doesn’t work, you have to UNINSTALL and then do a fresh PGI install.
