Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:.

The user ipf that are supported by this method will appear in a list.

Before using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:. The specified routine must reside in the current working directory.

UPF: Chapter 1: Using User Programmable Features (UPFs) (UP)

Absys other desired options ulf pick Run to execute the customized ansys. The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools. You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. The following user routines can be linked using this method:.

The executable file s created will be named ansys. This procedure will ask which versions you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with.


The first portion of the output is shown below:. After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:.

Get UPF return value from Mechanical APDL input file

By default this folder is:. Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. Use the following command:. After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit.

Enter the user routine name you wish to include. FC files files ending with.

These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set. All Fortran files files ending with. These messages may state that object files have been created, but the Mechanical APDL executable has not been created; or the errors may state that some libraries necessary to complete the link cannot be found. You will need all the compilers specified in the Installation Guide specific to your operating system to use these user programmable features.

When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:. In this command prompt window, issue the drive letter and all the necessary cd commands to move to the directory where the customized files exist example: The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured.


If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou must include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:. There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:. Create a dynamic-link library.

If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line.

Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems. When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys.

A script named findUPF. If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou need to include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:. The procedure then loads all object files files ending with. This requirement is due to shared library usage. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files.

The format of the command jpf.

When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. To execute the relinked ansys. The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing.
