Hi! I am not sure why but I am getting this error consistently every time I try to open Ansys mechanical. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but I am still getting this error. Please help! thanks!
Can you look in Workbench to see if there are any messages there too?
That's the error message showing. It is weird because it was working fine a few days ago.
sorry accidentally clicked on the solution option...and it isnt geometry issue its something with the mechanical interface of workbench.
Edit: rwoolhou. No worries. Think deleting my post fixed it: will wait for Win to get on.
Make sure all ANSYS applications are closed, then try registering the DLL's by starting a Command Prompt with "run as administrator" , and issuing the following commands
All must say successful.
Then, open up a regular Command Prompt , do not "run as administrator", and issue the following command
move "%appdata%ansys" "%appdata%ansys.old"
I had the same issue and this solved it. Thank you Win
Hi, I could fix the problems using the same stepsFor the first part you can watch this video:
Inside the prompt you will insert the commands:
regsvr32.exe vbscript.dllAnd after this step you should go to Disk C:-> Users-> The folder with your name -> AppData -> Roaming -> Ansys. So you can rename the folder with your license (mine for example is v201) for "(Your License)_old" (mine for example v201_old).I hope it works
Hello Win, can you please help me?
I seem to get the same issue.
I have tried to run the scripts in the command prompt, but several of them didn't run, see below.
In addition, I cant find this appdata. This is my working laptop, I am afraid to do something wrong, but maybe it is better to reinstall ansys at all?
Thank you for help.
Please, let me know what I should do to fix this.
all the codes that i executed say succesfull but in my desk i dont find the folder ¨app data¨ instead i got ¨calibry library¨ with the file named ¨metadata¨ what to do in this case???
pls help me - sorry for my english
appdata is the location for all of the user settings (graphics etc) and can cause problems with the software if it corrupts. If you've run a model the files should be wherever you saved Workbench.
