So first to the bad news. I can replicate the issue. The good news are that I got an email about this and can already give a first response. This is better than last year. I have tested it on a Windows machine and it worked. However now I tried a different one and get your message. I do not think that it is a difficult thing to fix as it seems to be related with the license system which the MVRC edition does not use. I will try to fix it tomorrow morning.

I understand the issue and know why it works on one pc and not on the other. A quick fix is to create a folder called lic where you have your MantiumFlow files. When starting the GUI you will get a warning but you can ignore it as far as I understand.

It did work on the interactive mode. It still fails trying a command line direct build:
C:\openfoam\Ricardo>MFlow_MVRC_win 17MO000 mvrc 6

Does it help to put a file ending with .lic into the lic folder?

In time, adding the .lic breaks the GUI again.

just to confirm I also get the error message about the lic file.
the suggestion of just creating a lic folder solved the issue for me.

MCAE Support Staff answered 2 years ago

OK, a new version is up. Please confirm if it works now.

From MVRC Staff answered 2 years ago

Yep, both interactive and command line work now. Thank you.
