Problem using GPGPU for Abaqus 6.11-3

Problem using GPGPU for Abaqus 6.11-3


Can anyone help me getting Abaqus to use the NVIDIA Quatro 6000 GPGPU on Windows 7, 64 bit?

I've run through some basic checklists, but still get the following error written to the .msg file:

I am using gpu=NVIDIA in the command line and I have a GPGPU
token.  I've also checked the driver, and I have the latest version. I downloaded and ran the gpuUtils.py script, and it comes back with 0 devices if that helps anyone solve the problem.

I noticed the knowledge base had an answer for the above error for Linux, but not Windows.  It was an access issue for Linux.

Any help gratefully accepted.
