This was a technical bug, please re-install/update to 1.12.2 Build 20.04.120:

https://github.com/precise-simulation/featool-multiphysics/raw/master/FEATool%20Multiphysics.mlappinstall
Really glad to hear.  

Ok... so I uninstalled the earlier 1.12.2 and downloaded/unzipped the 20.04.120, started Matlab, and executed the ml.....exe installation file.

See below what happened when I attempted to start "featool" 3 times .... then, I started it by clicking on the Matlab "App" icon for FEATool ... see that result.

Error using start_featool_gui
The FEATool GUI is already running.

Error in FEAToolMultiphysics0x2D1App/startApp (line 84)
                eval('start_featool_gui');

Error in FEAToolMultiphysics0x2D1App (line 48)
            startApp(obj)


I then uninstalled FEATool, closed Matlab, downloaded the .120 version again, unzipped, started Matlab, and installed FEATool.

See below the initial failure when trying to execute ">> featool", then the success when clicking on the Matlab App icon for FEATool.   I then closed FEATool and was able to start it as usual using ">> featool"

I then closed FEATool and Matlab, and restarted.  See below that it did the same dance to get featool started.

Not sure what was/is amiss ... If cannot reproduce it (don't know what it was) I can give more of my system (W7, i5, 8Gb) info and repeat the install if you desire.

I will begin using FEATool as if it is working normally. First I will run the tests...

But I cannot get

to run.   See attempts below (after 3 attempts I started FEATool by clicking on the Matlab FEATool App icon):

I then closed FEATool and Matlab, and restarted.  See below that it did the same dance to get featool started.
Installing a Matlab toolbox **does not** automatically add or set up paths to the toolbox files (so that Matlab can find the files and functions), this is only done when you start the toolbox. Therefore running the "featool test" command(s) will not work until you have started (and closed) the FEATool GUI at least once (unless you manually set up functionality to add the paths on Matlab startup). Note that any "featool ..." will try to start the GUI which will not work if it is already running as you can only have a single GUI instance active. Also "featool test" is the exactly the same as issuing "featool teste" and "featool testt" after each other, so if those pass your installation is fine. With respect to this issue:

The FEATool GUI/window is apparently already present (but perhaps not rendered visible), try the following Matlab commands before starting again:

    close all force
    clear all

Also before installing a new/updated version it might be good to clear *all* previous installations, that is delete everything FEATool related from the folder where Matlab installs toolboxes, in your case:

    C:\Users\Randal\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB Add-Ons

Also, if possible please start a new thread for unrelated issues (as this has nothing to do with slice plots) and try to include very long output as text file attachments (as a very long post gets hard to read).

First, let me apologize for my last post. It was indeed very sloppy.

I think my issues were a combination of path and multiple process attempts.

And thanks for the tips on installation. I did find an "FEAToolMultiphysics" and an "FEAToolMultiphysics - 1" directory in
    C:\Users\Randal\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB Add-Ons\Apps

Now my installation startup looks reasonable:

'featool' is not found in the current folder or on the MATLAB path, but exists in:
    C:\Users\Randal\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB Add-Ons\Apps\FEAToolMultiphysics

Change the MATLAB current folder or add its folder to the MATLAB path.

Thanks for your assistance and patience.

Re: Unable to start "featool test" from the Matlab command line

Randal,

I would like to add my experience with installing new versions of Featool:

1.  It seems it is always a better idea to uninstall current featool before installing a new version.  Even though the installer offers to "update" the install, it seldom works properly.  I install at the app tab on Matlab, then install the new version from explorer.

2.  I ran into the same thing you did when installing version 1.12.2, in that the path reported -1 and -2 separate directory remnants of previous installs, that only had example files installed.  It now seems that its a good idea before installing a new version to first uninstall the old version, make sure the matlab path looks clean of previous featool stuff, and go into the user\name\Appdata\roaming....etc matlab apps directory and delete any leftover featool stuff BEFORE installing the new version.

My experience only....yours may vary.

Tom
