Error after meshing/before defining conditions
Im using CFX through ANSYS workbench, I am fairly new to CFX so have been following the CFX tutorials available online.

I am trying to model the flow around a vehicle and so have applied the techniques used in Tutorial 5: Blunt Body and applying it to what i require.

After setting up my mesh in CFX mesh i try to open up the 'setup' section to define my loads etc but i get the following error:

ERROR Syntax error: %s parameters should have the format: load
Syntax error: action 'wbloadmesh' parameters should have the format: param=value

Anyone know why this is and how to solve it?
Any help is much appreciated

It turned out to be a problem with my working directory, after meshing the object i saved the whole workbench file as a new name, which it didnt like and gave that error.

I had to basically start again with a new working directory and saved as I went along using the same file name.

If this sounds like something you did then its worth trying to load the simulation from where you last didnt have any problems

I had the same error and it appears that having commas in the workbench file name caused the issue. I did a save as without commas and everything seems to be working fine.
