  • user side:
  • server side:
    • unzip in Promethee installation directory,
    • open shell console, check “Promethee_Install_Path/scripts/mcnp5 Promethee_Install_Path/examples/UO2” creates a “UO2o” file,
    • add
      <CODE name="MCNP" cplugin="plugins/calc/MCNP.cplugin.jar"  command="**Promethee_Install_Path**/scripts/mcnp5" />
      line in calculator.xml file inside ”<calculator>” tag,
    • wait for configuration refresh (5 s. if calculator is free).
