Running and configuring Adams Running and Configuring Adams 2 Running and Configuring Adams This section of the online help provides you with instructions for running and setting up the Adams® suite of products. It describes: Running Adams products. Creating user dynamic-link libraries that extend the functionality of Adams and run them with the associated Adams products. Configuring Adams products so they work the way you want them to. Installing Adams The install guides for UNIX and Windows can be accessed throught MSC.Software support website. View an electronic version (PDF) of the guides Adams Interfaces There are four types of interfaces that you can use to access Adams products and create libraries of custom operations for the products: • Adams Toolbar on UNIX only- The Adams Toolbar is your starting point to using Adams products. The Toolbar gives you access to the major products you installed. It uses a registry service that maintains values and settings that you need when running Adams. • Adams Program Folder on Windows only - The Adams program folder is your main starting point for running and customizing Adams products. Adams Selection Menu - The Selection Menu is a menu- and text-based interface that allows you to enter information on the command line. You can enter all of the commands on one line to quickly start the product. Note that you cannot access all products nor change all settings from the Selection Menu. • Command-Line Parameters - You can enter command-line parameters at the command prompt to run Adams. Although you can use the Adams Selection Menu, on UNIX we recommend that you use the Adams Toolbar because it provides an easy-to-use interface and lets you run all products. Because of its advantages, this online help focuses on how to run and configure Adams products using the Adams Toolbar. For information on how to use the Adams Selection Menu, see Selection Menu.
