Is there a better place to keep this information so it won't get lost? Perhaps the videos and tutorials section?

Done. I have left a shadow in the old place. I did that for the first time, and I wasn't sure what would happen; it left a link to the tutorials topic.

This is quite awesome.
Do you have any clue why the Conda based build doesn't work?

I'll have a look tonight through tomorrow and try to get a definitive answer with my setup (which isn't exactly the same as Thomas has documented) but there have been quite a few changes to the Cfd-OF Wb recently which did give me a headache with my macros I use for crude bench marking. We need to send @oliveroxtoby on holiday for a while :lol: (he does fine work, I just struggle to keep up sometimes).

Could you please look at the following blueCFD version info from Control Panel and confirm that you have the exact same version, I'm not getting any errors using the latest Conda build other than gmsh (which isn't build specific) and my bench marking macros are successful at solving the Millennium Falcon in 182 iterations which is as expected.

Aaah...I am not sure which version.
Our IT-service installed bluecfd last year on my Laptop.
I gave the IT-service the advice to use the bluecfd.github.io...
not bluecape.
https://joomla.bluecape.com.pt/index.ph ... =2&lang=en
http://bluecfd.github.io/Core/Downloads/

But the versions should be the same. Right? Should be...
Man, I am confused.
Greetings Thomas

the fs dynamics installation link directs me to bluecfd github. there should be no difference. at the moment
only 1 user reported a problem with conda.
lets wait what other users say...
i will correct my guide next week.
