Hi, sorry for resurfacing this thread from a while ago.
I have the same filelog error in Femap student version 11.4.
How do you change the directory that the nast11 file refers to so its correct. I've tried giving read/write access to the scratch folder to all users and that was unsucessful. This is the current nast11 script:
Thanks for your time,
Make sure the C:\scratch subdirectoy exist, if not this is the reason of the error.
The C;\scratch folder exists but I think it's in a location where femap can't access it. I've tried moving the folder to my desktop but that didn't work either.
You can put the SCRATCH folder in any location you like, for instance C:\SCRATCH is handy. Next, edit the NX NASTRAN Resources Configuration File "nast11.rcf" file with NOTEPAD located under <femap_dir>\nastran\conf and set SDIR=C:\SCRATCH, and you are done!. Please be aware of the extension of the RCF file, a common error is to save as nast11.rcf.txt, and this is wrong, causing error!.
