Conformal cooling solve relies on the presence of a valid Simulation CFD license.

When running a conformal cooling analysis, the Moldflow solver checks only for the Sim CFD 2014 Basic license. Users with the Sim CFD 2014 Advanced or Sim CFD 2014 Motion licenses may encounter the following error message:

** ERROR 313300 ** A valid SimCFD license is required for using Channel (3D) elements in a Cool (FEM) analysis

This hotfix explicitly checks for all Sim CFD 2014 licenses.

This hotfix should only be applied to systems directly affected by the issue described above, as this was the only issue this hotfix was created to address.
