Fluent doesn't work through Workbench

gmeira21gmeira21 Member Posts: 2

Hello,

My Fluent application will not work when I open it through Workbench. It does open but I can't seem to use it at all, but if I open Fluent independently it works nicely. Also when I open Fluent trough Workbench it won't close so I have to forcefully shut it down and after that it shows me the following error "The FLUENT application failed to initialize".



I've reinstalled ANSYS multiple times, even different versions. Right now I'm using 2021R2.

I've searched in multiple disscussions and I can't find an answer to this problem.

Is there a way to use Fluent through the Workbench?

Thank you,

Gonçalo Meira

    One for @Geo Karnos or @mmadore but if you're using VPN try turning that off. The other option on the launcher is to set the IP interface to 127.0.0.1 and see if that helps.

    I've already tried both and they dont work unfortunately.

    @gmeira21 Can you please screenshot the Launcher settings for each tab, both for launching from Workbench and standalone?

    Can you try changing the Working Directory to a different directory outside of the Program Files? Perhaps create a C:\Working directory and select that? This may be caused by failure to access the directory properly.

    @mmadore Sorry, I should've labeled the pictures, my bad. The first 5 pictures are form the standalone Fluent Launcher, the last one is from the Workbench Fluent Launcher. Here is another one from Workbench for more context.

    I can't change the working directory on Workbench directly, but it wasn't this one before, I must've changed it somehow. It was firstly in Program Files I believe.

    Can you share the text from the file %TEMP%\.ansys\licdebug.FLUENT.212.out?

    @gmeira21 I apologize for the delay in response. Can you please post a screenshot of the FUNCTIONAL Fluent window, showing the very top of the TUI section?
