Hi,

I dont have any perfect solution of your problem but rather have a suggestion. I had a similar problem. Everything was running fine and suddenly FLUENT started giving me same error as you mentioned. Later I found out that this was because I installed new version of Matlab. When I uninstalled the Matlab everything was back to normal. So check if you have installed any software which is causing trouble.

Hi there,

I found another solution to that problem. If I swith of Hardware Acceleration of my computer then there is no conflict between Matlab and FLUENT. To do so on your desktop right click go to the Properties/Settings/Advanced/Troubleshooting and move the Hardware acceleration slider from Full to None. This has worked for me.

Cheers!!

Anand
