Default Problem with example from the ANSYS UDF MANUAL

Wikie is on a distinguished road

to get use to UDF-programming I start playing arround with the examples mentioned in the ANSYS UDF GUIDE. I copied this example:

#include "udf.h"
real w, drag_force;
if (Re < 0.01)
return (drag_force);
else if (Re < 20.0)
w = log10(Re);
drag_force = 18.0 + 2.367*pow(Re,0.82-0.05*w) ;
return (drag_force);
/* Note: suggested valid range 20 < Re < 260 */
drag_force = 18.0 + 3.483*pow(Re,0.6305) ;
return (drag_force);

But it didn't work. My particles totally disappeared and I got this message. What is wrong with this code??

"chip-exec: particle_drag_force: argument 1: incorrect type (10): pointer expectedchip-exec: particle_drag_force: argument 2: incorrect type (38): int expected"
