Manual installation


Manual installation

If you don't have internet access, or if you prefer to install the gurobipy extension manually, you can use the installation script provided with the Gurobi installation package. Assuming you have already completed the Gurobi installation instructions, your installation directory (referred to as <installdir>) will contain a file setup.py. In order to run this installation script, you will need to open a terminal window, change your current directory to the Gurobi <installdir>, and issue the following command:

python setup.py install

Ensure that you have write permissions within this Python installation. You may need to install the distutils package before running this command.

Once gurobipy is successfully installed, you can type import gurobipy as gp or from gurobipy import * from your Python shell and access all of the gurobipy classes and methods.
