[lammps-users] Cannot launch LAMMPS

Hello!
I'm trying to input "lmp_serial < in.friction" or just ""lmp_serial"
in lammps-shell.exe, but LAMMPS gives error:

ERROR: Unknown command: lmp_serial (src/input.cpp:353)

bin folder is in PATH. What I'm doing wrong?

as it should. when you are in the LAMMPS shell you are already “inside LAMMPS”.
the way to start/read an input from the prompt of the LAMMPS shell would be “source in.friction”
launching a LAMMPS executable from there is like running a web browser inside a web browser.

bin folder is in PATH. What I’m doing wrong?

you didn’t read the documentation for the LAMMPS shell or don’t understand the concept of what it is meant to be.
