FLUENT 6.2 - Using a material properties database generated with a previous version produces the Error: GENERAL-CAR-CDR: invalid argument : improper list
-With FLUENT 6.2, you may see the following error if you are using a material properties database copied from a previous case that was generated with an earlier FLUENT version and if some of the materials in that database have a user-defined function (UDF) associated with them.
Error: GENERAL-CAR-CDR: invalid argument : improper list
Error Object: "cell_density::libudf"
FLUENT 6.2.16 has new syntax rules due to the addition of a new feature that allows for multiple UDFs (libudf) to be hooked within a case. The case file generated with an earlier FLUENT version will have an additional period (.) that has to be deleted for it to work within FLUENT 6.2. See example below:
density (user-defined . "cell_density::libudf") -incorrect
density (user-defined "cell_density::libudf") -corrected
Use a text editor such as "vi" on UNIX/LINUX or Textpad on Windows to edit the case file.
