Converting .CGNS to .MSH

I am trying to convert a .cgns file created in Pointwise to a .msh file for use in another in-house CFD code. Is there a way for me to create a .msh file directly in Pointwise, or a way to convert the exported .cgns file to a .msh file through FLuent or another software ?

Thanks a lot !!

Wow, you asked this question a bunch of times... ;)

Are you all set now?

I did...
I am still getting that version mismatch error message unfortunately. Not sure why this is a problem here though. Do you know if anyone else has experienced that error ?
Thanks !

Working on it, and here is a work around...
Nope, I have never heard anyone else complain about that version miss match error. The developers say that usually these paths are based on the ICEM_ACN env variable. They don't know why yours would pick the wrong version for just this one place... One of them will look into it and see if it is a platform thing.

I guess in the mean time, you could get around it by creating that path and copying the files to it?

Best regards,

Thanks. I am not sure where/what I would need to change when you say create a path and copy the files to it ? Create a path to what, where, copy which files ? I am really new at this..
