Error in running TurbSim

Postby Yajun.Ren » Mon Jan 21, 2019 8:41 am

Dear all:

I have a problem when running TurbSum. When I type the syntax in command promote as the instruction of TurbSim, it shows an error like:

C:\>Users\s1707212\Downloads\TurbSim\TurbSim64.exe CertTest.inp
Using NWTC Subroutine Library (v1.04.01, 21-Feb-2012).

Running TurbSim (v1.06.00, 21-Sep-2012).
Cannot open file "CertTest.sum". Another program like MS Excel may have locked it for writing.

Aborting TurbSim.

Could you please help with this? Thank you very much.

Dear Yajun.Ren,

It looks like you are running a model called CertTest.inp that is stored in C:\; is that correct? Do you have a file named CertTest.sum already located there?
