System Requirements


Operating System

  • 64 bit Windows 7, 8, or 10

Fortran Compiler

Since SINDA/FLUINT allows user logic and generates a unique executable each time it is run, you MUST have a copy of the correct compiler.

The following compiler is required:

Note: Only the Composer Edition of any version is required. The Professional or Cluster editions will also work, but those editions add features that are not required by SINDA/FLUINT.

Also see  Intel Visual Fortran System Requirements

The Intel compiler requires Microsoft Visual Studio or Visual Studio Shell (free) to be installed. Check the Intel system requirements to see which versions of Visual Studio are supported. If Visual Studio is not found on the computer, the installer will automatically install the shell version. No purchase of the Microsoft visual studio is required.

Evaluations: Please contact CRTech to learn how to evaluate CRTech software if you do not already have the Intel compiler.
