I'm currently trying to run a 1mil cell mesh but everytime I load it I get the following error
Setting Post Processing and Surfaces information ...
Error: GENERAL-CAR-CDR: invalid argument [1]: improper list
Error Object: #f

I will also get an error stating "material air not available" but this one only appears some times. I have tried re-defining my material from the Fluent database but that doesn't work.

The above errors are preventing me from using my Parameter Set in workbench which would be very helpful to use as I have a bunch of design points I need to run. I can run my cases by manually clicking Calculate.

If it helps at all this is the error workbench gives me when I try to run a parameter set:
Error Occured during handling message in WorkBench: An error occured in FLUENT when applying cx state information.
The cortex state and surfaces could not be updated

Any help is much appreciated!!

I'm using an older version of FLUENT (V6), and I am using a very large mesh as well. I get a similar error saying:

Error: GENERAL-CAR-CDR: invalid argument
Error Object: #f

Any help would be greatly appreciated

If the mesh passes the gridcheck, how can it possibly be a corrupted file?

Sorry, guys, for reanimating this old post, but I found the reason. The solution is described here. Shortly, you can mark all bodies "fluid" in the DM or Meshing.
