Can't start parallel on NT
 
Has anybody used the parallel version of Fluent on an NT machine? I get error messages when I start it.

I can run the serial version fine but when I try to start the parallel version of Fluent from a DOS window with the command:

fluent 2d -t2

I get a message:

Cannot read directory: c:\fluent.inc\fluent5.3\ntx86\2d_host

Any hints much appreciated, John Faragher

I once had a similar message. The reason was that no parallel version was installed. But it was with Fluent 5.2.

I am running a fairly complex 3D model using Parallel solver 5.3 on NT. I can start it in any directory. Make sure you have installed the P-version correctly. If you are including DPM in model, becareful, there is a glich in the code. Good Luck.
