I'm working on Tutorial #12 from the Fluent CD, and I can't go on after loading the UDF valve.c because this message keeps appearing:

Opening library "libudf"... Error: open_udf_library: The system cannot find the file specified.

Error Object: ()

Does anyone knows what I might be doing wrong???

Thanks!

Hello

Is this the first time you've used a UDF? On windows machines you need to launch fluent from the command prompt if you are using UDFs. (Under Programs -> Fluent Inc there should be Set Environment, after clicking on this you can launch Fluent by typing fluent, (perhaps followed by 2d/3d/2ddp etc.) into the command prompt, from any directory). Otherwise are there any errors above that in the compilation? This also would stop the library from being loaded.

Does this help? Kris

if u want to load the library, you must install a C language compiler first and set the environment as instructed.

Hello again

Does Fluent build a folder in your working directory called libudf containing scr and ntx86 folders? scr should have the a copy of the .c files you compiled from your working directory.

I had some problems creating the library on a 64bit machine as Fluent wanted to put the makefile etc. in a different folder.

Cheers. Kris

yes, the scr and ntx86 folders are created. scr has the copy of the .c file.... but still nothing.

thanks!
