"OpenCFD-OpenFOAM4WindowsInstaller-v1906.exe" installation issue
 
Hello,
I'm new in "OF" and installing
"OpenCFD-OpenFOAM4WindowsInstaller-v1906.exe" on Win7-computer following the guidelines in
"README.TXT" or "OF_Windows_Guide_v1906.pdf"(inside the above installation-"exe")
which looks like: after installation, in Desktop clicking "OF_Create_Env"(mandatory in first time), then "OpenFOAM_Start" would enable working with OF.
but the same msg. always came out after installations:
"...this computer doesn't have VT-X/AMD-v enabled ..."
in fact I'd enabled "VT" in the BIOS before installation.

do you know what or where is wrong?

thank you in advance and sorry for my teething question
(btw. "havdetectiontool.exe" checked my computer, i.e. VT is enabled)
thank you again

Hey Philip,


I had also some troble in installing OpenCFD in Windows.
If you have the possibility, try to use OpenFOAM4Windows for CFDSupport.

I'm using it and without having problems.


Cheers,
Carlo
