If I compile my UDF, I get error massage: c:\\fluent6.3.28\src\machine.h(114) : warning C4005: 'stdout' : macro redefinition C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\INCLUDE\stdio.h(160) : see previous definition of 'stdout'

What can it mean and what can I do?

If you are using Visual Studio 2005 Express or Standard Edition you might see warnings in the FLUENT window when you compile your UDF.
For example: warning C4005: 'stdout' : macro redefinition, etc. The UDF does compile and is able to load. You can disregard these warnings.
Explanation: These warning are in regard to the user defined data sections where users write-to/read-from the FLUENT data file in their UDF explicitly.
If you want to get rid of the warnings, you may put the following at the very top of your UDF source file:

In addition, users are restricted to using the following six I/O functions:
