Solver unable to find FlowSolve.dll

Post by Captain Slow » 07 Jun 2012, 15:56

Hi,

I have upgraded to Elmer7, using the windows binary on xp. I have been using a previous version of Elmer successfully for some time. However, I now have the following problem described in the Solver Log:

What is the problem here? What might be the solution?

Hi

You seem to have some old version (5.5) also on your path. I think the versions get mixed up. Try to remove the old version.

Aha! that has sorted it Thank You. I should probably have noticed the library version part of the Solver Log.

I am having the same issue (Win7). FlowSolve and many other files are in the lib folder. I am trying to open a project that I had created in Ubuntu a year or so ago (no longer have access to that computer, but I have all the files from the project).

Hi Chris,
Though i don't have enough experiences about Elmer in Windows, i would recommend you to install the latest version of Elmer as suggested by Peter in the above post.

I tried reinstalling and get the same error when I try to run my project. Additionally, when I now try to install Elmer, I get the following error: "A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine." If I keep closing the pop-up, it completes the install (don't know if it's properly installed though due to the error) and I can open up Elmer. This is an error that has been mentioned before but hasn't been addressed.

Hi,

I have the same question about C++2010.

Elmer works as usual.

I remembered that about 60% of installation is slow,but the rest is very fast.Just in 1 second.

Is it correctlly installed?

My current temporary solution is using a virtual machine with an old version of Ubuntu. Doesn't seem like there are plans to fix this issue as the GUI didn't work in the latest version of Ubuntu either.
