How do you kill Fluent from the command line?

I know that "fluent 2d -i journal.jou" starts it, but don't know how to stop it!

Cheers, Hugh.

in linux you can use "ps" to obtain the pid, then "kill pid"

FLUENT will create a cleanup script (called kill-fluent-#### or cleanup-fluent-#### depending on version), normally in your current working directory (the one you launched FLUENT from). Make this executable and run it, and it will kill all the child processes as well as the parent process. It might be located somewhere else under Windows though - I'm a Linux user.

Thanks both of you - i've rooted about and found the command "taskkill /f /im fl6216s.exe" which kills fl6216s.exe aka Fluent.

Cheers, Hugh.
