I just saw the same problem on an NT machine...

I don't know yet what is causing it, but I know how you can circumvent it. Assuming you are running NT, do not start Fluent from the Programs menu but open up a DOS Command window. Change to a drive where Fluent is not located (or not part of the PATH, dunno yet) and then start it up by the command 'Fluent 3d'.

This is a security measure to prevent people setting the date back on thier machines to prolong the usage of the license.

Check that the time and date are correct on the machine and then do a search for files by date, the start date being the current date and leave the other date blank. This will search the machine for all files with a future date on them. Delete or move these files off the system and restart the machine. Hope this helps.
