Set Windows Environment

You will need to set the path to your Dakota executable:

  1. Click the Start button and type 'cmd' in the 'Search program and files' text box to open cmd.exe.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, replacing %install_dir% with the path to your Dakota installation:
    set path=%path%;%install_dir%\bin;%install_dir%\test;%install_dir%\lib
  3. Optionally, to install the dakota Python package, also perform:
    set PYTHONPATH=%PYTHONPATH%;%install_dir%\share\dakota\Python
  4. These changes are active as long as the current terminal window is open. To make them persistent, edit the system environment variables in the Windows system settings. This operation differs slightly from version to version of Windows. Consult the documentation for the one you use.
