I have been sent a custom executable 'solver-pvm.exe', by the support team, to run on my windows platform. I have put it in a new directory so I can keep it separate from my original installation. When I solve, I specify this executable to be used in the Advanced/Solver section of the Run form, but I still get a error: 'cannot find dformd.dll'. Do I need to have a fortran compiler installed on my machine?

No, you dont need a fortran compiler. This dll is in fact packaged as part of the CFX installation, and it resides in the bin/winnt directory. The solver can no longer find it because you are now using a solver executable in a different directory. Simply copy the dll to your new custom solver directory and it should find it there.
