Default CFX-5: Output in a console window

Hi everybody,
I want to run CFX-5 from the console, preventing the graphical residual monitor which consumes some memory, and I don't get the output of the running solution (residuals in text mode, only values) in my console window which I originally called the CFX-5 solver. I suspect that there may exist an extra parameter not shown in the manual. Well, this is how I call the solver:
cfx5solve.exe -def [file] -ini [restart_file]
I've tried the -v (verbose) option but I didn't get any output in the console window. So, any hints?
Sincerely, cfd guy

Firstly, for all the solver options type "cfx5solve --h"

The solver is put into the background automatically, so you cannot get a live update. The output is written to the out file during the run (look in the temporary subdirectory runName_001.dir/out ). If you wish to view the outfile as it updates, use the unix tail -f command. The -f flag tells it to follow the file as it updates. If you are on NT, download and install cygwin to get tail and other unix commands.

Thanks Robin,
I work on NT and I've tested the tail command under cygnus and worked very well. I forgot to tell. This doubt also apply to CFX-TASCflow.
Suggestion: Perhaps in the next updates of CFX-5 and/or CFX-TASCflow we can get an option like this:
cfx5solve -tail or tascflow3d -tail , etc...
Regards, cfd guy
