Re: Gnuplot and Fluent on Windows
Yes, there are version of gnuplot that has been precompiled for 32-bit Windows. You can obtain them from here:

As to how you can get it work with Fluent, that may require a bit of programming in gnuplot script. To visualize the result from Fluent, you would have to export the data from Fluent in ASCII format. A proper Gnuplot script file should be able to read the data and present it.

Good luck!

Gnuplot is a handy way of monitoring convergence without running the Fluent GUI, something which is really useful when running on a remote machine.
