Compiling UDF
Hello Ravindra,

Here are some cares you have to take to compile a udf to fluent succefully:

1 - You must have Microsoft Visual Studio installed preferable on C: drive;
2 - The udf file must be in the same directory as fluent case and data files;
3 - Don't use dashes or spaces when naming neither your udf file or your working directory.

These things can cause errors. If you have any doubts take a look on these websites, they have good tips about compiling and interpreting your UDF file:

Hope it helps you,
