Hello to everybody,

I have been running a simulation with CFX 11 for one week and, for some reason I donīt know, I cannot access to CFX Post to save the results and stop the simulation but I know itīs still running.
I would like to know if there is any way to stop the running without loosing the results. Perhaps killing it directly from DOS?

Thank you in advance.

You can use the CFX command cfx5stop to stop the solver after the current iteration using:
cfx5stop.exe -dir <directory_path_where_solver_runs>

The path name of the current solver run usually looks like Name-of-Simulation_<Number-of-Run>.dir

Hi, Check the help files for stopping a run from the command line. Your can also put a stp file in the wrking dir.

Thank you, Martin.
When I am in the directory path I write:
cfx5stop.exe -dir Nameofsimulation_numberofrun.dir
ŋIs it correct?

You don't have to be in the directory. But better give the full path as argument to the -dir option...just in case there's another solver running

Create a file named "stp" inside the run directory (the one ending in .dir). Nothing in the file, no file extension, just name it "stp" and that's it.
