Post EPW error opening wfc file

I am trying to compile the latest version of QE(6.3.0)+EPW(5.0.0) with intel-compiler+mkl(18.0) and openmpi(1.8.8).

Everything is fine for pw.x, ph.x, wannier90...(All successfully pass the tests). However when I am trying to run epw code in test-suite, I keep getting this error...

Wannierization on 3 x 3 x 3 electronic grid

Spin CASE ( default = unpolarized )

Initializing Wannier90

Initial Wannier projections

( 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000) : l = -3 mr = 2
( 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000) : l = -3 mr = 3
( 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000) : l = -3 mr = 4

Post Re: EPW error opening wfc file
I have run into this error a couple of years ago. I traced it to the intel compiler particularly intel 16 and 17. When I compiled EPW with gcc, the error disappeared.

In addition, intel14 seemed to work just fine. It is likely that there are other factors which generate the error you cited.

I am currently building a new test-farm to test this. I can say that intel 17 should be working.
However I do not know yet about intel 18.0.
I will test intel 18 very soon and add it to the supported compiler if it works.

I therefore suggest that you use intel 17 or lower in the meantime.

Hi Vahid and Samuel,

Thanks for your response and help. I will try to recompile it with intel17.

Hi, mesgd,
I have encountered the same CRASH during running epw5.0. The compiler i use is Intel_compiler/16.0.3+IMPI/ Can you give me some advices if you have solved this problem.
