Reg. Installation of MFront


I am Pavan. I am new to OGS. I am getting an error while running any mechanics example that includes plasticity due to the missing MFront module. I would like to use MFront to utilise material plasticity models. However, I couldn’t install MFront on my windows system. I tried all the possible ways indicated on the site.

Please help me in this regard.


Dear Pavan,

I am sorry but MFront is not supported on Windows in general. For this scenario we recommend using WSL-based setup on Windows (basically compiling and running ogs in a Linux virtual machine).

I will add a note on linked MFront page that it is not supported on Windows.
