Ansys Fluent Setup Failed

edited October 18 in Ansys Products

Hi,

As I had the geometry ready and proceeded to the setup stage, somehow I got the following error msg: "This is an educational executable, and can only be used with cases containing less than 512000 cells. Please exit this fluent session and start another session to continue."


I am using the Academic License (with VPN connection to the University network), which should not have this limitation I guess?

Could someone kindly let me know how to resolve this issue?

Thank you so much in advance!!

    It should have picked up the Research licence, can you check it's not already in use?

  • @Rob Hi Rob, I am not quite sure how to check if the Research licence is in use or not, but I did attempt to only open the Setup page and it still didn't work.

  • Can someone please help? This is my undergrad thesis project which will be due soon.

    Thanks!

  • Here is the console:

    Can you try the following:

    In the License preferences as in your first post, change all licenses to 0, except for Academic Research CFD.

    This will only use that license.

    If this does not work, can you please run:

    Start->All Programs->Ansys 2020 R1->Ansys Client Licensing->Client ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility 2020 R1

    When this appears, choose:

    View Status/Diagnostic Options->Display the License status

    Copy all in the window(scrolling up too) and paste it here.

    Hi, @Geo Karnos

    as for your first suggestion, the console showed "Unexpected license problem; exiting."


    With all the licence disabled except the Academic Research CFD, here is the msg shown when I run the ADMIN utility:
