Compiled UDF
Hi to all,

I'm using compiled UDF on a PC (Windows system). If I modify my code and compile it again, I have to exit Fluent and restart it, otherwise the new libraries won't be created ('cannot open libudf.dll for writing').

Does anybody know a way to avoid closing and restarting Fluent at each modification of the code?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello, Try to change the name of the libraries each time you compile your UDF. Or erase before compilation the libudf file. regards thomas

Re: Compiled UDF
This happens because FLUENT opens the library libudf.dll when you open a case file which uses a compiled UDF.

You can't overwrite an opened file, so the only safe way to compile your UDF again is to exit FLUENT.

Re: Compiled UDF
Thanks for your reply! I cannot erase the libudf file since I cannot access it until Fluent is open. Thank you anyway.

Regards, Ale
