Running Eddy3D

Hi guys,

First of all, thank you so much for such an amazing tool!

I’ve been running Eddy at my home PC for a while without any issues,
however, when we installed it at work it is a bit different.

When I start RunMesh, the cmd.exe window pops up for half a second and immediately disappears.
We tried on 2 machines and the result is the same.
There is an it manager at the office so for instance we cannot run as admin without his password.

I’ve been wondering if you ever encountered something similar or maybe have an idea what may cause this termination. My guess it could be because the system does not allow to “write” at the beginning of cmd.exe command. Yet I asked a friend at another firm who has been using eddy and he said that it is probably not the case. He mentioned multithreading, but we’ve had 3ds max working fine at the same time.

Really hope that you can provide a good advice, it would be super helpful.

Thank you very much in advance!

Best,
Slava.

Hi Slava,

Unfortunately I can’t help. But I think I’me experiencing the same issue. It only happens with the cylindrical domain for an annual study. I think it has to do with MS MPI and the ability to run snappyhexmesh in parallel.

It works on my personal computer, but not on my work device, so my guess is something to do with permissions, but haven’t got to the bottom of it yet.

Hi Slava,

It should not be necessary to have admin credentials after the plugin has been installed. It could be though, that there is a combination of factors leading to your problem that I am not able to test on my side. It’s difficult to debug this without knowing anything about the IT situation etc.

When I start RunMesh, the cmd.exe window pops up for half a second and immediately disappears.
We tried on 2 machines and the result is the same.

Is there any chance you are able to click into the command window that pops up to copy & paste its content here?

Best,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

I might be having the same problem as Slava. Attached is the mesh log file from the example “annual wind analysis”.
log.txt (14.5 KB)

Like I said previously, this analysis worked on a personal computer but not on my work device.

Thanks for your help,
Andrew

Hi Patrick,

I wish I could, yet it happens so quick that there is no time to even click on it.
Thank you for your help, I will update the tread when we try more.

Best,
Slava
