    I have downloaded the 2020R2 compressed package according to the method on the official website forum and copied the new student.lic file into the folder.

    But when I run LS-Run, error 70022 still appears.

    Attached is the screenshot of the error report and the screenshot of the new student.lic file

    Note that the license file (.lic) copy and replace method is no more valid. You need to completely uninstall the product and reinstall the updated product having a new license key.

    I installed the student version in three different computers and in all of them I had the same problem, error 70022, as it happened for SHL. What can I do?

    As SHL and riccardomantovan I'm experiencing the issue. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the whole lsDyna student pack, no problems with LSPP, but LSRun terminates with error 70022

    @SHL @riccardomantovan , if you are still having that problem I've found a way to solve it. Uninstall everything and install it again. As soon as the installation is completed, reboot your PC, than open LSRun and run the simulation with the default settings. Window will ask a permission to let the program access your data, accept and it will work correctly.
