Gambit wont run. it said i need to set the environment. I tried this by going start->programs->fluent->set environment. and then said yes. but this did not work. anyone know what could be wrong?

Try to change the location of your environment variables from "User variables" to "System variables" or the contrary.

Set an environment variable called FLUENT_LICENSE_FILE that is pointing at the license

That should do it

Hi, You must RUN Gambit in this manner: START>RUN... X:\FLUENT.INC\ntbin\NTX86\Gambit.exe [filename] where: X: Is path of installed Gambit drive [filename]: Is an optional name and everytime you start gambit, you must change it. for example: c:\FLUENT.INC\ntbin\NTX86\Gambit.exe 1

If Gambit didn't start, Open Explorer(My Computer) and go to the X:\FLUENT.INC\ntbin\NTX86 where: X: Is path of installed Gambit drive and when this window is open, in START>RUN... type: Gambit 1 don't forget to change the filename(i.e. 1) in every RUN of Gambit.

Good Luck

oxidising agent is on a distinguished road
Hi, hope you have succeeded in running gambit.?
If not please try the procedure below. I had xactly the same problem. It easily worked for me as per this procedure.

(1) Start > Hummingbird Connectivity > Exceed > Exceed (Appln will open and u will see Exceed on task bar)

(2) R-click (Exceed on task bar) > Tools > Session Startup > New (Untitled X-session window will open)

(3) Click Directory.. > Select the folder where you have installed Gambit(generally the folder is Fluent.Inc) > Select gambit2.3.16 > OK

(4) Click New Program > Select Windows App > OK (Untitled Wstart window will open)

(5) Click Browse > Select Gambit ".exe" file > Select Run : Normal Mode > Run! (this will launch gambit application successfully)

(6) Set the working directory in the application > Run
(Gambit is launched / runs successful)

Njoy Gambit & Beer together.
