      Note: A more current version of the MS-MPI Redistributable Package is available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=389556.

      This package contains the same Microsoft MPI (MS-MPI) installer that accompanies the HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 4 release.

      You can now develop and run MPI applications without having to set up an HPC Pack cluster. Please refer to the HPC Pack 2008 R2 SDK for information on running small multi-process MPI jobs through the command line, without using the HPC Pack user interface.

      You may also redistribute this MS-MPI installation package with your own applications, to facilitate having an application that can run on a stand-alone workstation and easily take advantage of an HPC Pack 2008 R2-based cluster. Please refer to the license agreement for additional details.
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP Service Pack 2

      A computer running one of the supported operating systems.
    • To install on a workstation: Run either the mpi_x64.msi or mpi_x86.msi as appropriate to your hardware platform.
      For redistribution: You must include the entire installer on your installation media. Your setup program can run the MSI to get MS-MPI installed, but you may not bundle any of the individual files in your own installer. Refer to the license agreement for additional information.
