Problems with Gambit + Convert to Ansys Meshing
 
Hi all,


I have following problem with Gambit since this weekend:

Locating Exceed installation ...
Launching Exceed 13 ...
Starting C:\Fluent.Inc\gambit2.4.6\ntx86\gambit.exe -device open -id default_id5596 -new ...

I donít really know what happened, but it just stopped working overnight.
Iíve tried to change the ports in the license files, but I canít get it running.
After re-installing gambit and the license server, I still had the same problem.

When I use the command lmutil lmstat -a in the command prompt I only get

c:\>lmutil lmstat Ėa
lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2006 Macrovision Europe Ltd. and/or Macrovision Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Flexible License Manager status on Thu 1/29/2009 12:52


It should be more like:
:\>lmutil lmstat -a
lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2006 Macrovision Europe Ltd. and/or Macrovision Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Flexible License Manager status on Thu 1/29/2009 12:52

[Detecting lmgrd processes...]
License server status: 8224@my_lic_server <- Name of server
License file(s) on my_lic_server: C:\\license.dat: <- License file location on server
my_lic_server: license server UP (MASTER) v10.8 <- lmgrd version
Vendor daemon status (on my_lic_server): <- the daemons running
armlmd: UP v10.8 <- daemon version
Feature usage info: <- list of components and current users
Users of compiler: (Total of 1 license issued; Total of 0 licenses in use)

So I donít know what the problem is.


But anyway, I have started to use workbench now.

I have read that the FE Modeler can be used for importing the .dbs file.
Does anyone have experience with this?


Sincerely,


Vincent

It seems that the license probleme is also linked to Fluent. None of the programs work.

But ansys workbench isn't affected.


Maybe a reinstall of fluent and gambit will fix the problems.
