Hi, all,

I have problem with the residuals monitor---after I read my case and data file, I pressed plot/residuals, but I got the following error messages:

Error message from graphics function Update_Display: Unable to Set OpenGL Rendering Context Error: FLUENT received a fatal signal(SEGMENTATION VIOLATION) Error Object)

Any suggestion is pretty appreciated.

Emma

Don't know if this will help, but I was getting similar errors when opening graphics windows (Running Fluent on WinXP). Turning graphics hardware acceleration down worked for me. To do this right click on your desktop then click properties>settings>advanced>troubleshoot then move the slider down until fluent doesn't crash (moving down 3 notches worked for me). Hope this helps!

James.

i had some problems with a graphic card before (couldnt see any figures and grids) and i could fix it by starting Fluent with the command: /pathtoyourfluent.exe/fluent.exe -driver msw

(which sets the graphics driver to the microsoft driver as far as i know) maybe this helps... Stefan
