RE: how to use hmetis it is giving error

I downloaded hmetis 1.5.3 but i m not able to use hmetis.

even i gone to cmd and cd to that directory but when i execute hmetis.exe it gives an error

"hmetis is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

how to execute then.

RE: hmetis is a command line

hmetis is a command line tool. so you need to open a cmd window, cd to that directory and execute it. If you do not know how to perform these steps, ask someone around your place to explain them to you.
