On Windows command promt, fluent is not recognized as command

For windows command prompt to recognize fluent as command prompt, the fluent executable path needs to be included in the PATH variable in Windows environment variables.

To do this, right click on the My Computer link and select Properties. In the Systems properties window that opens, select the Advanced tab and click on Environment Variables button at the bottom.

In the system variables window here, scroll down to PATH variable and click edit.

Append the existing path with fluent executable path that can look like C:Program FilesANSYS Incv130fluentntbinwin64

Make sure to separate the new path from existing ons by a ; before C

After this is done, open a new command prompt and you should be able to start fluent from command prompt.

If you have more than one versions of Fluent installed, you can add multiple paths and then control which version of Fluent is launched by specifying version using -r command line option.
