Thermocalc 2017

Post by JACEK » Tue May 16, 2017 11:02 am

Hi
I am going to install new Thermocalc version 2017a.
It will be required to perform new GES files for sumulation running?
Regards
Jacek

Dear JACEK,

Welcome to the MICRESS forum!

The update of Thermo-Calc to version 2017a does not change the .ges file format, so .ges5 files are fully compatible to older Thermo-Calc (and MICRESS) versions. Thus, for running MICRESS there is no need to update the .ges5 files.

Anyway, the TQ-interface which is delivered with MICRESS (and which determines the .ges5 format required for running MICRESS) is not changed by a version change of Thermo-Calc, as the installation of MICRESS is completely independent.

Best regards

Bernd

Thank You Bernd for information.
We have finished TC installation succesfully but on start the CMSX4_dri.txt we obtained comunicat :
# Reading GES5 workspace ... (see below) and simulation is on hold.
We have used dri file from trainning - without any changes -should work.
Could You recomend some actions to take?

Dear JACEK,

it could be a license issue or a network problem. In order to narrow it further down, I would like to ask you some questions:

-do you have general problems running MICRESS, i.e also for examples which are not coupled to thermodynamic databases (e.g. Grain_Growth_dri)?
- do other examples which use coupling to thermodynamic databases work (e.g. Gamma_Alpha_dri, AlCU_dri)?
- did the CMSX4_dri run before installing TC2017a or before doing any other things?
- do you have a valid licence for the Thermotech TTNI database?

Bernd
