API Documentation is missing

Hi everyone,

 

it seems as if the API documentation is only partly available in the \Help folder. In the Autodesk online help it says:

"The API language reference is included in a separate documentation library included with the installation. To access it, navigate to the Help\API-Documentation sub-folder of your Autodesk Simulation CFD installation, and double click on index.html."

However, there is no index.html in that folder. I really need it for creating python scripts, can someone tell me how to add it to the installation?

 

Thanks in advance!

You don't see this file in your 2013 installation?

 

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2013\Help\API Documentation\HTML\index.html

It looks to me that you have a corrupt install. I would uninstall and try again. There should be 214 files in there.

When you installed did you right click and pick 'run as administrator'?

 

Sometimes that helps.

I reinstalled it with right-click "run as administrator" and still no change. Is it possible do address the Help folder on the Installation Disc directly?
