solution to procedure entry point error pow2o3

After having lots of issues with trying to get ansys to run I now have this error:

"The procedure entry point pow2o3 could not be located in the dynamic link library F:\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS STUDENT\v202\ansys\bin\winx64\ANSYS.exe"\

I have viewed other questions with similar issues but the solutions did not apply. For example I do not have libmm.dll in systems 32 so that should not cause issues. I have reinstalled ANSYS multiple multiple times. I unblocked the zipfile before extracting, I ran the setup in administrator as well. Frustratingly it worked fine once at an earlier date but I have spent a week troubleshooting to no success. The initial errors were missing dll files such as AnsGPU.dll which was strange as it was in the GPU folder within the bin folder, as if the ANSYS.exe could not find it. I have reinstalled in different drives including C. I made sure to delete all files related to ANSYS before reinstalling as well. Also microsoft visual studio is up to date as well as windows 10.

    @ConDoHas Some other (non-ANSYS) software installation may put older version Intel Compiler dynamic link library (e.g. 2017) files under C:\Windows\system32, including:

    libchkp.dll

    libgfxoffload.dll

    libicaf.dll

    libifcoremd.dll

    libifcoremdd.dll

    libifcorert.dll

    libifcorertd.dll

    libifportmd.dll

    libioffload_host.dll

    libiomp5md.dll

    libiompstubs5md.dll

    libirngmd.dll

    libmmd.dll

    libmmdd.dll

    libmpx.dll

    liboffload.dll

    Rename C:\Windows\system32\libmdd.dll (e.g. to libmdd.dll.old) may resolve the issue.

    Also suggest rename (delete or move) other Intel Complier dynamic link library files in above list in C:\Windows\system32, and notify other (non-ANSYS) software vendor not to put such files in C:\Windows\system32, since different applications may need different versions Intel Complier dynamic link library.

    Please also send the full output of running the "set" command from a command prompt.


    Thanks
