Environment Variables

MCalibration and PolyUMod use the following environmental variables. Note that they are all automatically set by the PolymerFEM installers.

  • RLM_LICENSE.  This variable was previously called veryst_LICENSE. It is automatically set by the installer to the location where the license can be found. For a node-locked license it contains the full path to the license file. For floating license it contains the port and host name for of the license server. For example, 5053@localhost.
  • ANS_USERPATH contains the name of the directory where the PolyUMod for ANSYS files are located. Typically: C:\Program Files\PolymerFEM\PolyUMod\PolyUMod_ANSYS.
  • RAD_USERLIB_LIBPATH contains the name of the directory where the PolyUMod for Altair Radioss files are located. Typically: C:\Program Files\PolymerFEM\PolyUMod\PolyUMod_Radioss.
