physics solver doesnt do anything

Hey Guys,

I downloaded aim the other day and did an fluid analysis fine. I'm now trying to do a second and encounter a problem where the solver doesnt do anything, its just stuck on 85% on start up and the application appears to not be using the CPU at all...

Ive reinstalled it multiple times, checked the firewall and its allowed access. i just dont know what else to do. I dont think its my set up. 

Any suggestions?

    The image is not clear. 
    Can you copy the test in error.

    Please check if you have any spaces or special characters in the folder names or file names.

    Can you please upload the image once again. Since it is not clear, difficult to understand.

    I am experiencing the same problem. I set up a simple model with loads, constraints, material, and try and solve but it makes it to 85% and then stops. I have used many FEA softwares and this usually happens when the meshing engine cannot converge on a solution, but the model I have is way too simple for this to be the problem. Is there a way I can get assistance via a remote session to troubleshoot this problem?

    It's better for you if you start a New Discussion, because when someone replies to this discussion, you don't get a notification, the original poster gets the notification.

    The way you get help here is to post a detailed description of the model you are building, the geometry, the mesh, the boundary conditions and the error messages you receive.  Please do that in a New Discussion.
