Default Why does Fluent quit on me?
Posts: n/a

I'm trying to run my steady state case in Fluent. It workes on another machine that I was using. Now, I re- read the case and data files into another machine in order to hook the UDF and run the unsteady state simulation.

I set up the case and it statrted working fine. However, I minimized the Fluent window in order to do something else and then Fluent just quit (vanushed completely) from the scree. I tried multiple times and the same thing kept happening. Can anyone tell me what's wrong and what I should do? I stopped working on the previous machine due to other problems.

Thanks, Vidya

wrong or opengl-driver not installed

check in prompt

fluent 2d (or 3d) -driver msw

msw forces fluent to use the native windows driver

if gone, install a new driver

you can also set this as service

Vaiable: HOOPS_PICTURE Value: msw/win
