Not responding error

Even after updating DWSIM to its latest version, it continues to show a not responding error after every couple of steps while making a flowsheet. I have to restart the whole programme following this which causes major inconvenience. Wahat is the solution?

We aren't facing any such issues as mentioned by you while using DWSIM. Can you please check if you meet all the system requirements that have been listed for running DWSIM?

That's pretty hard question.

I had the same problem but haven't find the answer...

I think this issue may be due to some broken .dll files so
Please first uninstall DWSIM with all of its components(if you install with ChemSep, Cape-Open Files, etc)(please use any kind of uninstaller (FOSS uninstaller BCU: https://www.bcuninstaller.com/)) and again install it.

Not responding errors may be related to the flowsheet renderer, you can change it on General Settings > Flowsheet.

Also, make sure to have the latest .NET Framework version installed with all its security updates and fixes.

You can also update your display driver to see if it helps.

If all of the above fails, try running the New UI instead of the Classic one. Open the "DWSIM (New UI)" desktop shortcut.
