DPF code doesn't run on Linux machine in 2022R1?
For 2022R1 Ansys’ Linux installation is not shipped with the CS_DataProcessing.dll which the C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v221\aisol\DesignSpace\DSPages\Python mech_dpf.py script adds a reference to, that is the error shown above.
C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v221\aisol\DesignSpace\DSPages\Python mech_dpf.py
As a workaround you can copy C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v221\aisol\bin\winx64\ CS_DataProcessing.dll from Windows Ansys installation on the Linux machine and add the reference to the dll in the new path, using the code below. Please make sure to add these lines at the top of your existing code:
C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v221\aisol\bin\winx64\ CS_DataProcessing.dll
import Ans.DataProcessing as dpf
ds = mech_dpf.GetDataSources(1)
NOTE: Currently for Linux, DPF’s IronPython API is not supported in Mechanical. If you have written some of your code using the IronPython API you will need to convert that to C++ Syntax (but still Python code). Please refer to mech_dpf.help()
