Default Cannot start fluent with command line

Hello all,

This is a really simple one but I can't get it to work. I'm trying to start fluent with the command line but I get the error: "Fluent is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." I already modified my environmental variables and it still doesn't work. My computer has 2 HDs, and my main one is NOT the one that fluent is on, which I think is causing the problem but I don't know how to get around it. On my other computer with only 1 hd I have no problem at all.

Thanks in advance

can you run fluent from the path. if you want to run fluent within environment variable. you need to put exact path.

In Windows: set path, right click on My Computer ...
In Linux: add path to .basrhrc: export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ansys_inc/v121/fluent/bin or similar.
