I just want to share my experience in compiling UDF on windows platform. Many users find it very difficult to compile UDF on Fluent. The first error they get is that:
''nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. 'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.'
I am sharing a PDF that shows how to compile UDF.
Another issue most users get is:
"Error: open_udf_library: The operation completed successfully."
This error happens when you are compiling a .c udf file which is not in the same directory where you have the case and data files of Fluent. It may also occur when you have a - or space in the filename of the UDF or the Fluent case and data file or you have a space or - in the directory where you have these files. So make sure that filenames and directory names do not contain spaces and dashes.
