**: If your system requires another MPI implementation, contact us on how to build ADF on your machine.
The Source code (v2006.01) is only relevant if you have a source code license and wish or need to compile ADF yourself.
For some systems ADF has been also built with HP-MPI. Using HP-MPI with ADF does not involve any additional fees but in order to use it, HP-MPI must be installed in the system. You can download HP-MPI from the SCM website after signing and faxing to us a special license agreement. For more information about HP-MPI, including User's Guide please visit the HP-MPI page at HP
