Streamline anomaly & missing .dll

I'm running out of options and out of time so any help would be very apreciated. I'm using ANSYS 12.1.

I'm kinda new to CFX modelling, and am really just getting familiar with it. So far I believe I understand the basic process of creating a simulation (Geometry - Meshing - CFX). However there are some problems I've encountered; every streamline I make seems to travel half way through the domain and then suddenly turns to right outlet corner (imagine a cube as an object in a cubic domain..), like there was an invisible wall.

The other thing is that every time I try to run the solver cell the SolverManager.exe comes up with an error "The program can't start because libCUEMonitorData.dll is missing...". I've looked pretty much everywhere and can't seem to find one, only scam sites. If anyone could like... send it to me or post an actual link I would be eternally grateful : p. Reinstalling doesn't seem to fix the problem.



I hope there weren't too many spelling mistakes :/

Firstly - the installation should work fine. You have something weird with your computer if it cannot find a dll. Check you are installing it with admin rights. If you are installing a pirate version.... well, you get what you pay for, don't you?

Secondly - Your weird CFD problem - please post an image and describe what you are modelling.

Oh, thanks, admin rights (damn you windows) seem do have done the trick. My copy is perfectly legal.

As for the modelling part:


As you can see, I'm not doing anything special, just some simulations with different roof designs. The inlet speed (most of cyan-blue lines) is about 30 m/s. The scale is still a mistery to me but it seems like the air is being sucked through that one corner??

Got it : D

All the problems vanished when i plugged in the second monitor. Strange. And about that weird anomaly - my outlet was set to Average pressure - 0 . Changing that to Static pressure did the trick.
