Hello there,

I am a beginner to fluent. I am trying to define udf through compiled function and then load libudf. It seems fine after I click "build", but I always get error message as below when I click "load"... (I am using windows version, VC is installed).

1 file(s) copied. (system "copy C:\Fluent.Inc\fluent6.2.16\src\makefile_nt.udf libudf\ntx86\2d\makefile") 1 file(s) copied. 0 (chdir "libudf")() (chdir "ntx86\2d")()

Done. "c:/phdwork/fluentcases"

Opening library "libudf"... Error: open_udf_library: The system cannot find the file specified.

Error Object: ()

thank you in advance for any help or comments...

Hi

Do you have nmake.exe installed on your computer? Also try putting the libudf folder in your working directory of FLUENT. I am not sure if its causing that. But it helped me.

Thanks,

Shanti

For compiling i add the source file and then click on it and say build.then when i say load i get the above error.

But i was told by fluent support to go to Dos prompt. GO the the directory where ur source and c files are there and say fluent 2d/3d and the enter.

So try this and chck. Each time u compile erase the libuf folder created when u earlier compiler

Hi Sangeeta,

Thank you for your reply.

I tried it the way you said, but am still getting the same error " The system cannot find the file specified".

Just read this once 1. I go to cmd and go to the folder where my udf and case files are there 2. I type Fluent 2d there. 3. Then Fluent opens, i select my case file. 4. I go to define udf option add my source file "udf_name.c" Then i build the udf n then i load my udf.

Isn't it the same procedure as earlier?... Did it work for you?....

In anticipation of your reply,

Regards, Ravi

Hi,

I had the same problem when I run Fluent in windows. But then I installed VisualC++, everything worked. It seems that you need to have a compiler installed in the computer. This is how I solved my problem.

Here are the steps, I do to run an Udf file.

1- put the udf file in my case directory.

2- Go to Define>user-defined Functions>Compiled> There you should first add the udf file.

3- Click on BUILD

4- Click on LOAD

..it should work.

Tania

Sangeeta, It seems that you had visual c++ installed before Fluent. If I were you I'll uninstall Visual C++ and Install it again... and check what happens.

In my case, the installation of visual C++ solved the problem of Udf Loading error message.

Just try it and tell us if it works.

Hi guys, i've had this problem before.1) Depending on the machine you're running on fluent's internal compiler builds the udf code with a "Makefile" script. This could be missing. 2) For starters, your udf .c file should be in the same directory as your .cas file, ie. in your working directory. 3) Also check your Fluent software folder for the SRC directory, it should have all the header .h files inside to build the preprocessor directives in your code. 4) i'd like to know if your code even builds correctly at all before you load it. What does Fluent say about the building process? If you code was not built, you can't load, it will give you the load libudf problem. Anyway if any of those stuff i mentioned above is happening then the building will definitely fail. If nothing helps, try to find the "log" file in your working directory, send it to the fluent guys, they'll figure it out for you. They'll know what's wrong.

well in my case which i have been working on for a couple of days, its like im in the first stage itself. try to build but the nmake file not found, to my knowledge this is coz of not detection of nmake file (the compiler fluents hopes to find once u click build on compile panel) of vc++ by fluent. as for now, i can only suggest that it is related to properly definining the path in environment variables.

regards

I don't know if this will help. May be you should try to set the environment by doing :

Start-> Program-> Fluent Inc Products -> Fluent ->SET Environement

But this should have been done right after the installation of Fluent.

Hi Sangeeta,

Did you send the fluent guys the log file? Let me see it as well, i'll see if it's a similar problem to mine. Computers are funny, for all you know if you try it on another machine, you might actually be able to compile.
