Error during ANSYS WORKBENCH Installation


I am trying to install ANSYS Workbench 2020 R2. I have unzipped the folder, but when I try to install the setup it gives a critical error (not responding) . Please Suggest the needful. Tried to do it several times but everytime same issue.

    I had the same issue.

    I tried using the CMD Promt code: move "%appdata%\ansys" "%appdata%\ansys.old". However, it did not work.

    My solution was removing all "Ansys" folders from the AppData folder. To do so, I had to "Show Hidden Items" on the Windows Explorer, then removed the Ansys folders under C:\Users\{User_name}\AppData, both Local and Roaming.

    Note that I had this issue after a first unsuccessful installation of ANSYS, when I ran out of space in my hard drive.
