UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory. The system cannot find the file specified.
When trying to LOAD a compiled UDF when running Fluent Network Parallel you get this error message.
Explanation: The Move or Copy command in a Command Prompt window does not support UNC paths. During the Build process FLUENT uses these commands to build the correct directory structure. When Building the UDF you have to use the local directory path in the Library Name panel when Building the UDF.
Information about UNC Paths
UNC stands for "Uniform Naming Convention". It is a standard way to access network shares in Windows.
The format of a UNC path is: computer_nameshare_name
Where: computer_name is the network name of the computer
Where: share_name is the name of the shared directory
