hi Make sure that the route file or folder name doesnt have space. It should be single word. I think it will work just try this

A floating point error is an error which happens during a floting point operation.

Nothing to do with the name of the folder where you save your mesh or case file.

Are there other messages after the "Floating point error" one? Something like "Invalid number" or similar I mean.

This error may depend on different reasons.

For example, I encountered it using the granular model, because I did a mistake giving a boundary condition on granular temperature.

I'd suggest to check all your case settings. If you use UDF, check the code for errors too.

Dear nikita, In case you use a UDF you should check if the 3 letters 'nan' are mentionnioned which means 'not a number' that would mean you effectuate a division by zero at the beginning of your iterative process.

cheers tom
