To be able to run MESHFREE on multiple CPUs in parallel, you will need Intel MPI. We generally recommend using the same version that was used to compile as given in the executable name. As of November 2022, this is Intel MPI 2021.6. We will provide the required offline installer on the ownCloud download page in the folder 3_Dependencies/Intel_MPI.
The latest standalone Intel MPI can also be downloaded directly from the Intel website at
or as part of the Intel oneAPI Base and HPC Toolkits from
Please note that Intel MPI falls under a separate End User License Agreement, which you will need to accept during installation.
You only need the license manager if your license has a limit for the number of simulations that can be run at the same time. This is given as the option NUM_TOTAL in a file with ending lcd. In the folder 3_Dependencies/FITlm on the ownCloud download page, you find the executable and libraries for the license manager in separate archives, as well as the user manual as a pdf file.
In the folder 3_Dependencies/Templates on the ownCloud download page, we provide a little template run script for MESHFREE that you can use as a starting point and adapt as required for your system.
