Cannot edit/save the host file

• If you are the administrator and cannot save the file then

• Change the file permissions by editing its properties. The properties of the file can be located by right clicking on the file and choosing “properties” from the pop-down menu. (refer to next slide)

• Save the host file again and it should work.

Installation and working directories

• ABAQUS installer automatically chooses ‘C:\Abaqus’ as the installation directory and ‘C:\temp’ as the working directory.

• Note: All the files that you would create in ABAQUS would later be saved in this “temp” directory. Hence, it is not a bad idea to use an appropriate name for the working directory. I use ‘C:\work’ as my working directory.

• Note: Both these directories are created by ABAQUS and you should not create them. ABAQUS does not accept the directories created by you.
