Subject: How to put the scratch directory for Finite Element Analysis (FEA)?

If the user receives the following FEA error during analyzing

Installation problem, cannot find "Scratch directory for NASTRAN not specified"

then he must specify an existing directory for the scratch files.

This can be done either for the running Modeling session ( for example for the C:/TEMP directory)

(ferrum::ferrum-set-scratchdir "C:/TEMP")

or for permanent usage at the file "da_config" by simply taking out the comments from a line.
(for example at C:\Program Files\CoCreate\CoCreate Modeling 2008\personality\sd_customize\DesignAdvisor/da_config)

Then CoCreate Modeling needs to be restarted
