I am encountering a problem with my simulation, it's a fairly simple model with two concentric pipes that resemble a part of a heat exchanger. My problem is that when I run the simulation the solver does not progress and all it says is: 'preparing model...'. My CPU and memory isn't doing a hard job at all when looking at the task manager and the log and info tabs in the solver do not tell me anything.
I looked for a solution on the internet but didn't find anything that helps. I tried to change the firewall settings, but no success.
Helpful info might be:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600
GPU: AMD R9 270
RAM: 8 GB
Solidworks student edition 2020 SP03
Windows 10 2004
On my laptop the simulation does work but because I need to run multiple simulations, I rather do it on this PC, which should be faster.
I hope someone knows the solution.
