Quickstart

Download

Download the latest release of OpenGeoSys from the Download-page. Be sure to pick the correct file for your operating system.

Installation

OGS itself is a simple executable file so you can put it anywhere you like. For convenience you may put into a location which is in your PATH-environment variable which allows you to start the executable without specifying its full file path.

Running

OGS is a command line application. To run it open a new command line shell (called cmd.exe). Now simply type ogs (if the executable is in your PATH-environment variable) or specify its full path (e.g.: C:\Users\MyUserName\Downloads\ogs.exe) and hit ENTER.

OGS prints out its usage instructions:

PARSE ERROR:
             Required argument missing: project-file

Brief USAGE:
   ogs  [--] [--version] [-h] <PROJECT FILE>

For complete USAGE and HELP type:
   ogs --help

You can see that there is project-file missing. You can get some examples from the Selected Benchmarks-section.

Then simply supply the path to a project file as an argument to the OGS executable:

ogs .\Path\to\BenchmarkName.prj

OGS is a command line application. To run it open a new command line shell (Terminal). Now simply type ogs (if the executable is in your PATH-environment variable) or specify its full path (e.g.: ./path/to/ogs) and hit ENTER.
