Note: *Benchmark testing suggests that up to a 30% increase in performance of simulation can be realized if the operating system, MSC Apex installation and the Solver Scratch directory is on a Solid State Disk compared to the same installation on a SATA hard disk drive. MSC Apex may not be installed on shared or mapped network drives.
