error with plot in Fluent 6.3
 
Dear CFD's family,

I have a huge problem with some error command in Fluent 6.3. It sounds: INVALID PLOT FORMAT FILE. And I don't know where is trouble, I cannot iterate. I do exactly the same commands that I made in older version on Fluent. Maybe after updating something went wrong. Could anybody help me? Or could anyone explain what this error means? Perhaps it is conected with values of convergance criteria? I add that I made grid in Mixsim (new version).
I will be very very very grateful if someone helps me.
I will waiting patiently.
Please answer me.

Check to see if you have a "surface area" monitor defined. If so, delete it. This is something that I've seen carried over from MixSim files into Fluent which Fluent does not use and so it does not allow the solver to work.
