Add GAMS directory to PATH environment variable - MATLAB to GAMS MTG

Post by Archiver » 1 year ago


Hi there,

unfortunately I have only a solver licences from my UNI for the 23.7 GAMS release.

In the installation set up of that version, I cannot tick "advanced options" to add GAMS directory to PATH environment variable

Somehow MATLAB does not find GAMS

This is the message if I write: system 'gams ? lo=3'

'gams' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

In the meantime I tried to install 24.1. version to communicate between the 24.1. version and GAMS, but that's stupid - I would like to control my licenced version with MATLAB...

Has someone an idea?? I can also not find instructions on the GAMS homepage...

Stefan

Hi Stefan


You can easily add the path to the system variable (see here http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm for how to do this).



If you don’t have the rights to do this, you could add this directory temporarily using a batch file like this:



echo %path% > path.txt

SET PATH=%PATH%;c:\whatever\else



The first line saves the existing path environmental variable in the file path.txt (Windows or I once deleted this variable with all the directories for the executables, and I was happy to have a backup).

The next one adds your directory to the existing path. Save this lines in a batch file (e.g. mypath.bat) and double click on it.



Hope this helps



Cheers

Renger

Hi thank you very much!

I figured out how to set the path environment variable..

Nevertheless - the MATLAB2 GAMS tool is unfortunately buggy with the 23.7 release - It gives several errors, which cannot track down.... So I try a work around.... :-(
