Sorry for the novice topic on a board with a lot of high level questions. I hope to be more adept with the software in the future, but for now I am simply trying to run one of the included example files.
I downloaded and extracted FASTv7.02.00d-bjj, created the batch folder and added it to the System Variables path, and created the batch file for FAST. Then I tried to run Test01 (and others) in command prompt with no luck. I’ve been trying for some time now and found a couple of mistakes I had made when installing/calling, but I am at the point where I feel confident that I’ve installed and am invoking the code correctly. There must be something I’m missing and hope that you can help.
I’ve included a screenshot of what happens when the code is called in command prompt. If I call FAST without specifying an input file I at least get some response from FAST. When I specify an input file noting happens at all; no error message, FAST version, title line from the input file, or anything.
What should I check when receiving an output (or lack thereof) like this?
I don’t need AeroDyn or any other code to run FAST if I am not compiling it, correct?
Thanks for your time,
