How do I know which version I am using

Every FLACS-CFD release is denoted by a version number and a release number, for example v10.4r2 for version 10.4, release 2. This article describes two methods on how to find the exact version of FLACS-CFD you are using.


Version and release number in About FLACS

In the FLACS RunManager, CASD or Flowvis, select Help and choose the About FLACS RunManager/ CASD/ Flowvis (depending on which program you are in).

The exact version number of FLACS-CFD is shown in the top left corner of the window that opens.


Version and release number in the README file

Windows

On a Windows computer: Start a file explorer, open the folder Program Files\GexCon\FLACS_vXY.Z. Click on the README file. You will find the full version number at the top of this file.

Linux

Linux: On Linux, FLACS is typically installed under /usr/local; type
>/usr/local/GexCon/FLACS_vXY.Z/README-flacs-vXY.txt

XY.Z denotes the version number of the FLACS-CFD release (e.g. 10.5) and XY only includes the two first digits of the version number (e.g. 10).
