Default CFX Compatibility
Posts: n/a
My computer was just upgraded to CFX 11.0

However, I am still having some files generated from CFX 4.4 including geometry file (.GEO), database file (.DB).

I'd like to know if I can use these files in CFX 11.0?

Note: I tried the dump file (.dmp) already and it's OK.

Thank you very much.

You won't be able to load the .db file. You should be able to load the .geo file into CFX-Pre. Once it is in CFX-Pre you can generate a .def file - if you want to edit the mesh you can load the .def file into ICEM and edit it there.

The output .dmp file will be able to be read into CFX-Post but you won't be able to use it for restarts or anything like that.
