Having trouble launching CAD model into Simulation CFD from Inventor

When opening a CAD model into Inventor, the option to launch into Simulation CFD is not given, while the option to launch into Simulation Mechanical is. Any ideas how to fix this, or how to launch my CAD model into CFD a different way?

Inside Inventor, check whether the simulation CFD add-in is loaded or not (Tools>Options>Add-In). If you are using the new CFD 2014, then you can directly open inventor .iam and .ipt files from within CFD.

Run this program to try to fix your CAD Connections:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2014\SimCFDConfig.exe

 

You may need to select 'run at administrator' when running this setup program.
