How to get the MUMPS solver on Windows OS?

Post by foadsf »

Following this post, I am trying to run ElmerSolver against the .sif file provided by Kevin Arden. However, I get this error message:

Code: Select all

ERROR:: CheckLinearSolverOptions: MUMPS solver has not been installed.
STOP 1
I have downloaded the binaries from here. and used the cmd/batch script to set up the environment.

I remember some posts in this forum on MUMPS and windows. Also the use of MUMPS is not a requirement for the Elmer solution, there are other options available. For direct you could use Umfpak or banded, or switch to an iterative solver.
