[gmx-users] Windows XP and GROMACS

Hi Luca

For example, suppose you have installed gmx in: C:\Program Files\Gromacs
Go to Control Panel / (Performance and maintenance)/ System/ Advanced/ Environment variables
Edit the Path variable and add to it C:\Program Files\Gromacs\bin
You may also add the variable GMXLIB to point to your gmx forcefield directory.
Reboot the system.

If you type mdrun or whatever binary from gmx pack, inside a Command prompt window, wherever you are, the program will start.
Does this respond to your question?


P.S. It's not an alias like in unix systems, but it works.

  Dear users,
  having now also a machine(actually, a notebook) with Windows XP installed, I would like to run GROMACS on this new machine(I usually work on LINUX machines...).
  I have installed it, and almost all the programs(all the ones I have tried to run)work correctly.
  But the question is: is there any way to create a sort of alias for recalling executables from other locations? Or do I have to use the files in the directory where GROMACS is installed ???

  Thank you in advance, and, of course,Merry Christmas
