Application error(s) occurred in CFD-Post.

      Hello everyone,


      I built a very simply model of fluid flow around a cylinder to learn how to use ANSYS using the Student version. Everything was going fine bulding the model, mesh, solution setup, etc. until the results. After pressing 'Calculate' in Fluent, I pulled up the Workbench window again and all of the boxes (Geometry, Mesh, Setup, Solution, Results) had green checks next to them. However, when I double clicked on results to open up CFD-Post, I received the following error message: "Application error(s) occurred in CFD-Post.  To view the full message please click 'Show Details' or review in the Messages window. 'wbload' action requires parameter: 'id'." 


      I have uninstalled and reinstalled ANSYS 18.2 four times now and the same error keeps happening. I am not sure what to do at this point as the results can't seem to be passed from Fluent to CFD-Post for some reason. Has anyone else ever had this issue or discovered a workaround for this? Rather frustrated at the moment.  Thanks for the help!

      Sorry to hear that.

      Can you please make sure that your file or folder or subfolder name does not have any spaces or special character. 

      Save file with different names without any special character or spaces and let us know.
