MPICH Parallel Local Error
Hi everbody,

I can`t launch a Local Parallel Solver. I have a processor with two cores and I am trying to use MPICH2 at CFX Solver and I always receive the next error:

"The ANSYS CFX solver could not be started, or exited with return |
| code 255: . No results file has been created"

I am using the next instructions:

1. Uninstall previous version of MPICH2
2. Open an admin command prompt by right-clicking on the command prompt icon and selecting "run as administrator"
3. Run "msiexec /i mpich2-1.3.2p1-win-ia32.msi" from the admin command prompt to install MPICH2
4. During installation select that MPICH2 be installed for "Everyone" for all users.
5. Run wmpiconfig and store username/password.
6. Add "C:\Program Files\MPICH2\bin" to system Path and reboot
7. Check smpd using 'smpd -status'. it should return 'smpd running on $hostname$'
8. To test execution environment, go to the directory $MPICHROOT\examples and run cpi.exe using: 'mpiexec -n 4 cpi'

can anybody help me?

I am quite desperate

thank you in advance
