Hi, I'm trying to reopen my previously saved simulation file, however a warning appeared saying:

Design STAR-CCM+ simulation completed
Server process ended unexpectedly (return code 36)
Cannot open file: C: desktop\user's folder\___.sim (specify - new to create the file)
Server working directory:C:\documents

does this mean the saved file has to be in a particular directory for it to work?

Thanks in advance.

No, it means the file you selected to open does not exist or the system doesn't have permission to read it.

I keep getting this problem when trying create a new file, old files I can open but it just doesn't let me create a new file. I was wondering if anyone knows a fix for this

Folder permissions, Read-Only probably?

If the file does not exist you need to add
as option when you are calling starccm+, That's also stated in the erro message BTW

starccm+ -server -new

Hope it helps
