Hi

Use the following step to do that:

1.Create a folder say "batchRun".

2.Pre process all the model which has to be run in batch mode.

3.Save the first model in batchRun folder, and for other models creat separate folders for each run, save the models in these folders (one model in each folder). Say folder names are "case2", "case3", etc.

4.Save the *.mdl, *.geom., *.prob, and, parm.inc, in respective folders.

5.Now create a text file in batchRun folder with following text:

star "dp hostname, 2 (help: star is for star solver, -dp is double persion, hostname is computer host name, e.g. localhost etc., 2 is for number of processors, this will run the first case, which is there in batchRun folder)

cd ./case2 (help: to change the directory to case2 directory)

star "dp hostname, 2 (help: to run the case in case2 directory)

cd ../case3 (help: to change the directory to case3)

star "dp hostname, 2 (help: to run the case in case3 directory)

6.Save the text file as "batch.sh".

7.In terminal go to batchRun directory and issue the command "source /opt/star/v332/etc/setstar"

8.To give permission to the batch.sh file, give the command chmod 777 batch.sh

9.Now to run the analysis issue the command "./batch.sh"

this will run the cases one after the other. Results will be saved in the respective folders

Hi I use Linux RH Ent V4. So, commands are for Linux. You can change according to windowsXP. Like for "batch.sh" (shell script in Linux), you may have to use similar version of file in Windows (may be *.dll or *.inf).
