Running fluent without cortex

Does anybody know if I can run fluent without cortex?

Re: Running fluent without cortex
Yes you can. From a DOS window (or terminal window), type:

fluent 3d -g

for single precision 3D. You have to make sure the fluent installation directory is in your path (If you don't know how to do this - google it).

Actually, there are many more options you can specify, type:

fluent -help

to get them all.

Re: Running fluent without cortex
Cortex still runs when you start fluent with -g, it just uses the text UI rather than the graphical UI.

Which may be exactly what the original poster wanted.

If the cortex process dies or is killed, the fluent process dies too (at least that is the way it used to work...).

Re: Running fluent without cortex
Yes. Correct. The cortex still runs with -g. I dont want cortex to be running at all but just the solver processes.
