GUI detected error

GUI detected error

Hi all, I got a problem during working with abaqus cae. This is the massage on DOS screen "GUI detected error while waiting for ipc connection to close. ABAQUS Error: ABAQUS/CAE kernel exited with an erro" How can I resolve it?
thank in advance.

RE: GUI detected error

Hmmmm.....this is well known problem related with hardware
acceleration. I suppose that you have allready set off the hardware acceleration in the graphicsConfig.env file. If you have not allready do it just open the file and set
the line


Your last move is to turn also OFF your hardware acceleration from the Display Properties. Go to your Desktop
right click to open display properties. Click from  Settings tab Advanced. Choose Troubleshooting and set hardware Acceleration to none. I hope this will resolve your problem.
