amsys is on a distinguished road
I am carrying out a couple FSI simulation by linking ANSYS CFX to Mechanical. However now that I want to edit the setup component of CFX, I recieve the following error when "updating" the component:

"Update failed for the Setup component in Fluid Flow (CFX). Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Any suggestions as to how to resolve the issue would be welcome.
