Simulation Results Folder Location

This article shows how to designate a specific directory in order to store the results from a SIMULATION study. It can also help with the following error message, “Failed to create temporary file. Please change Simulation work directory.”

1.  Go to the menu bar and select Simulation > Options


2.  Select Default Options > Results. (The options are under the Results folder section as shown in the figure below.)

From the example above, a sub folder named Results will be created within the directory of the component that will run the study. The general recommendation is to setup a sub folder for the results instead of allowing those to be saved into a temporary folder.  

Additionally, if a sub folder is used to store the results, verify that users have the necessary read/write permissions to that folder. This will help ensure that those studies can be accessed later. Also, these changes will affect all future studies.
