In order to compile your UDFs you must have Microsoft Visual Studio. You must run FLUENT throught Visual Studio's command prompt. Then do what user's quide say.

Hello there,

Just do:

Start -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt.

And in the command prompt window just write: fluent. In the end it will look like that:

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC > fluent

Don't worry it will run!

Dear Leverkin,

may I ask you to explain why you are insisting on using Visual Studio? Is there an advantage to it (which perhaps might help others as well)? As I have experienced so far, Fluent compiles on its own just about anything written in proper C. Looking forward to your response,

Regards

if you use the compiler in fluent you can not use dynamic mesh. and some other things. it's decribed in the UDF manual. if that is what you asked for -lurk

As lurk said you cannot compile your codes if you dont' have VS or a compiler of C with a command prompt.(If you are working in Linux is different!)

Compiling is more usefull if you want to run your programms parallel and have many advantages because you create libraries which makes your codes ease to transfer.

You can find usefull informations in UDF Manual -> Chapter 5: Compiling UDFs about compiling.

I hope i have answered your question!
