Hi, All

I'm facing an error when I try to run the unsteady optimization tutorial (

When I tried running the original .cfg, the first direct simulation stopped before reaching the value in "TIME_ITER". The log points out that it reached the time limit described by the command "MAX_TIME = 1s", which is not written in the .cfg.

Turns out that inserting a MAX_TIME value bigger than TIME_STEP * TIME_ITER worked to solve this problem. Then it stops again right before starting the adjoint simulation. The log_Adjoint.out presents this message:


Error in "void CConfig::SetPostprocessing(short unsigned int, short unsigned int, short unsigned int)":
Invalid iteration number requested for unsteady adjoint.
Make sure EXT_ITER is larger or equal than UNST_ADJOINT_ITER.
------------------------------ Error Exit -------------------------------
I don't know how to make it work. I tried setting TIME_ITER bigger than UNST_ADJOINT_ITER, but I still got the same error.
