it is possible that fluent/cfx share the same annual license. For example if I want to work 3 days wit fluent then 4 days with CFX during a week.

how do you set it up?

thanks

My understanding is that you would have to buy both CFX and Fluent licenses. There is no sharing of licenses.

In the future it will be possible to either choose a Fluent or a CFX solver. The questions are: when and at what price.......

ANSYS has it's act together and is going to implement this.

Unfortunately such a change can only happen when a major release happens and there was no time to do this for 11.0.

Should be available for the 11.0 service pack.

Hi Heck...

sorry man (or woman ;-)) but....read your own words....

it was over 1 year ago now that deal was made public...

Not enough time..that is "having your act together"!!!

.and the answer is going to be a service pack...come on ....talk about complete lack of customer focus!!!

This sounds a lot like the day Ansys eliminated CFX-build on new-years day...because it was not in Ansys's best interest!

There are a lot of users paying a lot of money and are looking for a plan....

Here are some tips on the issues...just for your managament....no charge this time...LOL

- so we get this service pack....then what about support and training....???

- what about pricing issues.... say I paid x dollars for a cfx license and fluent was 1.2 x....then joe (or Joanne...;-))down the steet paid 20% less than me but is running the same solvers?

- long term what is the solver going to look like....I would like to start doing work that will still be backward compatable in 3 years!

It looks like it is time for some fast and flexible competition to move in!

Get your act together for real for next time.

Regards,

Bak_Flow
