Kendricklamar is on a distinguished road
Has STAR-CCM+ given any of you problems in the past when trying to open it? The program runs but does not display on the screen. “Design STAR-CCM+ simulation completed. Server process ended unexpectedly (return code 8)” is the warning which I get when I try to open a project directly. I have tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it multiple times, but the error seems to persist. Any help on this would be appreciated.

bluebase will become famous soon enough
The manual states that exit code 8 means a licensing error occurred.

In the 2020 manual (v15), you'll find this information in the following path:
StarCCM > Client-Server Setup > Client-Server Connections > Running the Client in Batch

You might have missed to set licensing options when you run in batch. Have a look into that article from the manual:
StarCCM > Client-Server Setup > Command-Line Reference
or, if you want to run the Design Manager:
StarCCM > Design Manager > Design Manager Reference > Command Line Options Reference
