Test Installation

To verify your platform's environment is properly set, make sure Dakota version information displays correctly.

  1. Open the terminal window (on Windows OS, cmd.exe).
  2. Change directory to the bin/ directory in the Dakota install directory, e.g.,
    # Unix
    cd /path/to/dakota/install/directory/Dakota/bin
    # Windows
    cd C:\path\to\dakota\install\directory\Dakota\bin
  3. At the command prompt, type the follwing command and make sure you see Dakota version information:
    $ dakota -version
    Dakota version {version} released {release date}
    Repository revision {revision} built {build_date_and_time}.

NOTE: Dakota optionally provides additional test suites that run a subset of Dakota tests filtered for your platform (see the link below).
