2.1. Obtaining FORCES PROĀ¶

FORCES PRO is a client-server code generation system. The user describes the optimization problem using the client software, which communicates with the server for code generation (and compilation if applicable). The client software is the same for all users, independent of their license type.

In order to obtain FORCES PRO, follow the steps below:

  1. Inquire a license from https://www.embotech.com/license-request or by directly contacting licenses@embotech.com.

  2. After receiving a license, if registered on the portal, the FORCES PRO client can be downloaded from the portal after assigning an Engineering Node. For more information see https://my.embotech.com/readme. Otherwise the FORCES PRO client will be sent to you via email.

  3. Unzip the downloaded client into a convenient folder.


The FORCES PRO client contains several inner ZIP-files for the Python client named forcesproXY.zip. These do not need to be extracted!
