Why am I getting "process exited without calling finalize", and how do I fix it?
When using HEAT, I often encounter a situation where the structure meshes successfully but the simulation does not run. The error message is:
 process exited without calling finalize
...thermal-engine-msmpi.exe ended prematurely and may have crashed. exit code 0xc0000005
This happens, for example, when I change the dimensions of one of the (rectangular prism) objects in my structure. In this case, even a very small change can trigger the problem. With one set of dimensions, the programs happily runs, but with the other it crashes with the above messages. What is going on here?
BTW, sometimes when this happens, I tweak the HEAT mesh settings, and the problem disappears, but not always. I suppose without any understanding what is going on, I cannot come up with a reliable solution. It is very frustrating.
