Problem regarding ANSYS 2019 R2 License Renewal
I have been using the ANSYS Student Product , version 2019 R2. The license of the software was due to expire on 31st May, 2020. However, the licensing of the Post-CFD software expired a day earlier. So I had this friend of mine download the same version and email me the license file. I'll attach the photo of the process he followed to extract the license file from the downloaded installation pack.
I replaced the license file in the program files folder. ( E:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\Shared Files\Licensing ) After doing this the Post-CFD software worked fine for a day, until 31st May. I launched FLUENT using command line-
2020/06/03 19:29:56 INFO Demo license file E:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\Shared Files\Licensing\student.lic exists.
ANSYS LICENSE MANAGER ERROR:Capability Fluent Solver does not exist in the ANSYS licensing pool.
The specified license path:
FLEXlm Servers: E:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\Shared Files\Licensing\student.lic
does not have any licenses for any product. Please make sure
the license server has been started correctly.
Hit return to exit.
Unexpected license problem; exiting.
Can anybody suggest me how to solve the issue? I thought of downloading the actual installation pack, uninstall, clear roaming data and re-install. But my friend is facing the same problem and re-installing didn't help her.
