Hi Tom Allison

This is expected as the Mechanical Cloud wizard does not support solving the down-stream systems of linked analyses.  You can still use the Cloud Direct to solve these by:

1 Using a VDI  then solving 'locally'

2 On the down-stream analyses use the "Write Input File" option.  Edit the ds.dat as needed (may be some commands using reference to local file(s)).  Gather the needed up-stream files and the ds.dat to one folder.  Then use the Cloud command line to start the job.
