Issue with Simulation module and Win11 version 22H2

17/01/2023 (latest update: 15/05/2023)

  • An update to Win11 (version 22H2 or higher) can potentially block the ability to run the Simulation module (the progress stays at 0%) in Magics 26.1 or lower.  
  • The problem has been resolved with Magics 27.0 or higher.
  • If using Magics 27.0 (or higher), or Win10 (version 21H1 or later), or Win11 (version 22H1 or lower) is not an option, a workaround for this would be to ensure that the Simulation process has a higher priority than the Magics process. This can be adapted in the Task Manager:
    • Option 1 (=preferred): increase the priority of the simulation module (Agent.exe) from Normal to Above normal  
      Graphical user interface, table

    • Option 2: decrease the priority of Magics (Magics.exe) from Normal to Below normal
