this depends on the platform. as far as i know hpc is not available under nt, but under linux there should be no problem.

you have to setup a hpc run with (the gui) prohpc for distributed memory - select 4 cpu's - this means that each pc(-name) should be in the host list two times. then go through the panels following the manual or online help.

p.s.: before you can do this you have to install hpc and get licenses for it from cd

Peter is right in what he says, HPC is available for all Unix platforms but not yet PC. I am doing the PC port for HPC at this very moment (got the first benchmarks completed yesterday and the speed-up: 60% on 2 dual vs single, is worth having). If anyone out there is willing to act as a tester I would be happy to work with them, my experience with PCs is that two supposedly similar machines behave differently depending upon what other software has been installed and so I want to try as many platforms as possible especially those I have not set up and which are not out of the box.

The version we are porting is v3150 which is the latest version of STAR-CD. Testers would need to be existing STAR-CD users.
