Failing to start FLUENT

      Hi all!


      I have got a licensed version of Ansys 2019R1 from my university. Design modeler and mesh modeler work fine but when I attempt to open FLUENT, it flashes for a moment without the geometry attached to it and then disappears with an error message saying "FLUENT application failed to start." The operating system that I have is:



      I am using dual boot system with Windows and Linux on the same system by dividing hard drive (512gb) into two parts.


      The division is as follows:


      (C: drive): 188gb


      D: drive - 171gb


      Linux - 153gb


      Please guide me this issue.

      Can you launch a blank stand-alone Fluent session ?

      No Sir, I'm getting the same error when I try to open the blank stand-alone Fluent session.

      Open CMD Prompt then issue the following command (change your version and installation path accordingly)


      "%awp_root193%fluentntbinwin64fluent.exe" ^-r19.3.0 3d -t0


      Does this work ?


      If not, try non-gui mode


      "%awp_root193%fluentntbinwin64fluent.exe" ^-r19.3.0 3d -g -t0


      Does this work ?


      Thanks,


      Win
