I am running CFX-Solver on a Windows 64XP OS. The problem is large - 190M mesh elements.

I did a partition run with the large problem partitioner which seems OK. Then with a full run using the partition that part runs OK but I get the following error from the solver when it starts:

+--------------------------------------------------------------------+

The thing is I have increased the solver's memory allocation factor to 4 and the master's Real Stack allocations (seen in the table above) change accordingly, but the maximum supported by the flow solver doesn't change at all.

If anyone can suggest what this strange flow solver limit, which is below that allocated, is set or caused by it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you installed ANSYS CFX for 64 bit or 32 bit?

I suspect what you are seeing is that the partition size you are using is too big for the solver to handle. You are going to have to partition it into smaller partitions.
