3.1. Obtaining FORCESPROĀ¶

FORCESPRO 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 FORCESPRO, follow the steps below:

  1. Inquire a license from https://www.embotech.com/products/forcespro/licensing/ or by directly contacting licenses@embotech.com.

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

  3. Unzip the downloaded client into a convenient folder.

Note

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