Inviscid Euler flow

I would like to know if its possible to solve the inviscid Euler equations in CFX11. I saw a few previous threads where the same question was asked, but there the recommendation was to use laminar flow with suitably small viscosity. An inviscid solution is however never the same as a viscous solution even with the lowest of viscosities, unless of course you argue that numerically you always have to deal with artificial viscosity.

Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to solve the inviscid Euler equations in CFX11 without resorting to the previously mentioned method?

Re: Inviscid Euler flow
I tried it with CFX and also with FLUENT with the inviscid option. But it doesn't work as you would ideally want it to, the results are still of viscous flows. These solvers aren't designed for that , I guess. Or can someone correct me?
