First, we'll add the FEBio installation folder to the PATH variable. Open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Switch to Classic View and double-click the System icon. In the dialog box that appears, select the Advanced tab and click the button named Environment variables. Find the path variable and click the Edit button. At the end of the PATH's value (don't delete the current value) type a semi-colon and then the absolute path to the FEBio installation folder (e.g. C:/Program Files/FEBio/). Then click the OK-button on all open dialog boxes.
To open a command prompt, click the Run menu item on the Start menu. In the dialog box that appears type cmd and press the OK-button. A command prompt window appears. You can now use the cd (change directory) command to navigate to the folder that contains the FEBio input files. To run FEBio, simply type febio (with or without additional arguments) and press Enter.
