    Hi all,

    Thank you for all the links to assist on the matter. It has been a very hectic and frustrating week in trying to link Fortran compiler to Abaqus.

    In brief, I have come across many ‘genuine’ guides on the internet as well as Youtube videos. I have tried quite a few so far and as a result went through series of installing and uninstalling various versions of Visual Studio and Intel Parallel Studio XE with the hope that one combination will work eventually. There was also an instance where my Abaqus installation got corrupted and had to therefore reinstall Abaqus.

    Finally, I now have a PASS on Abaqus with User Subroutines upon Verification! I run Abaqus 6.14.1 on Windows 10, with Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 Update 3 Cluster Edition, and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition SP1.

    The main guide I used (obtained from one of the links of @Ruibin Hou above) can be found here:

    After following the steps, it still was not working as I was encountering the following error:
    “LINK: fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file ‘msmpi.lib'”

    After looking it up on the internet, I came across this forum which helped me to download and install MS-MPI and to copy the new files in the Abaqus library. See link/posts for more details:

    Do not hesitate to contact me if you encounter difficulties in linking Abaqus to Fortran. This is a rather simple objective, but it is silly how convoluting and time consuming it can be. All the best!

    Regards,
    Hashmi
