Update failed for the Solution component in Fluid Flow (CFX).  The solver failed with a non-zero exit code of : 2

every time I tried to solve my the problem.. it gives the above error.

This error can happen for a number of different reasons. Did the CFX solver start up at all or did the run fail immediately?

If the run failed immediately, try right click the solution cell and select "Reset"

This will clear any previous data that could be preventing the solver from starting up properly.

You can try changing the define run to use "current solution data". Current solution data looks for the .res file with the most recent timestamp. If you make this change, it should pick up the right file and continue.


Hope this will help you
