Dedicated graphics card drivers and OpenGL
PostPDS relies on OpenGL. If you encounter an error when trying to load simulation results in PostPDS open the ‘Configuration Utility’ from the ProteusDS 2015 programs in the Windows Start Menu and set the ‘Rendering detail mode’ to ‘Compatibility’. Save and exit the application and try reloading the simulation results in PostPDS. If this fixes the problem, but you have a discrete graphics card on your computer, consider updating your graphics card drivers and then setting the ‘Rendering detail mode’ back to ‘Full’ for maximum performance.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable package

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package Download Page The Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable package is required to run the ProteusDS solver. It is free and can be downloaded here. It is frequently pre-installed on the latest Windows operating systems.

Network and firewall access
ProteusDS uses a networking protocol to communicate between its constituent components during simulations. Sometimes, this protocol attracts the attention of Windows Firewall. In the event that Windows Firewall presents an alert that it has blocked some features of ProteusDS, such as in the following screenshot, please choose ‘Allow access’. Without granting permission to access your computer’s networking resources, ProteusDS may not function as intended. For computers using 3rd party firewall or antivirus applications ensure that the following applications are granted network access: C:\Program Files (x86)\Dynamic Systems Analysis\ProteusDS 2015\ProteusDS\ProteusDS.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Dynamic Systems Analysis\ProteusDS 2015\PST.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Dynamic Systems Analysis\ProteusDS 2015\ProteusDSQueueingManager.exe These applications use the following ports for UDP communication: Port #1: 23737 Port #2: 23738
