Can your problem fit into your available RAM?

I am using Windows OS with 2GB of RAM of FLuent 6.3, so its hard to believe that this could be an issue. I have a mesh with apporx. 2.6 million cells. It seems that the windows OS might not be suitable for this case, so a switch to Linux is the go. Thanks for the reply!

Hi You need about 1Gb RAM for each 1million cells in the mesh. So you may have reached the limit though this is dependant on model used (eg radiation and coupled solvers need more memory). For 32 bit windows you can address 2**32 bytes per node which in reality is about 2Gb. Options are use 64bit Windows/Linux and add more RAM (needs about 30% more RAM for 64 bit) or run in parallel with shared memory. For the former case you will need 64 bit compliant hardware as well (and ntx86_63/lnamd64). cheers
