Got time to look at this? I’m having to run all simulations on windows now and that’s not fast

Hi, sorry for the delay on this. Is it possible that you created the case on Windows, ran it on Linux and than came back to Windows for the post-processing?

From MVRC Staff answered 2 years ago

That’s exactly what happened.

It’s what I had been doing all the time, in fact. Now I’m processing in windows. It’s noticeably slower than both Linux at AWS and OSX on my laptop.

Until there is a better solution, you can try this workaround:
Open the /postProcessing/settings.mwf file with a text editor. Change the value for local_OS from Windows to Linux or other way around and then try to post-process again. The off-screen post-processing is almost done as well.

Ok, editing settings.mwf did the trick on cross platform reporting. Thank you.
