# Research License: Why can I not access all the functionalities?

Hello, I have a floating License for Ansys Academic Research via my university. I do not seem to be able to access the full potential of the Research license in the modules I am using (Mechanical, CFX, System Coupling in 2020 R2). Most notably, I seem to be capped at 4 cores instead of the 16 that should be included. There seem to be plenty of licenses available so I was wondering if someone has a tip for me?

@Manatee What is the problem you encounter when trying to access more than 4 cores? Can you share the contents of the %TEMP%\.ansys\licdebug.ANS_SOLVER.XXX.out file?

Thanks
