I am running fluent on an HPC which recently changed its solver to 2020R1. The solver gives me .cas.h5 and .dat.h5 files. When I try to load them into a CFD post fluent workflow for post processing on my PC I get an error that the .h5 isn't supported, screenshot attached. This makes absolutely no sense considering that I am running full version 2020R1 on my PC and the 2020R1 solver on the HPC created the .h5 files. How do I get them to read?

CFD-Post does not yet support the .h5 files. Please export the files from Fluent in .cdat format to have the best compatibility with CFD-Post.

This is what I ended up doing... Why does CFD post not have that ability if fluent 2020R1 defaults to solving with .h5? Seems like CFD-post is under powered to me.
Thanks for the help,

I believe this feature is under-development.Unfortunately, that's the most I can share at this point.
