Run the sif file by ElmerGui Windows

Post by Daga1991 » 17 May 2020, 14:00

Hi, I have a problem can anyone help.
I use Windows and I have ElmerGui installed. I'm trying to run a .sif file, unfortunately I can't open it.
I used the hints on the forum, however, a message like the bottom appears.

C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\1f_silnik>elmersolver

When I try to run the file by run
ElmerGui model.sif
runs only empty ElmerGui

Thank you for your help

you don't have a
ELMERSOLVER_STARTINFO file
the ELMERSOLVER_STARTINFO
lists the sif file to run, in ElmerGUI you have to save project to get one prior to running
from the command line you can execute a sif by typing
ElmerSolver mycase.sif

without having a ELMERSOLVER_STARTINFO file

Hi

Just a wild guess: Windows has added .txt as suffix to the sif file?

Everything is working now;)
I am trying to use Elmer to simulate a single-phase motor with an auxiliary condenser winding
