Windows Command Line
Setting up and using Gurobi on a Windows system sometimes requires you
to type command-line commands. This can be unfamiliar to Windows
users, so this section provides a bit of help.
Windows provides a few different options for inputting commands. For
simple commands, you can open a Run window, by pressing the
Start key and the letter R simultaneously:
A command can be typed or pasted directly into this window.
You can also type or paste commands directly into the Search
box (towards the bottom left of the desktop on Windows 10):
While these two interfaces are useful for issuing simple commands,
they aren't suited for extensive interactive usage. If you want to
launch Gurobi command-line commands and see the resulting output, for
example, you'll need a Console
window (also known as a Command Prompt
window or just a cmd
window). To launch a
Console window, type
into either the Run
box (as described above).
This window will remain open, displaying the output from the previous
command and waiting for the next command, until you close it.
