After installing the R18.0 ANSYS Student (or AIM Student) I see a Product and CAD Configuration program in my start menu. When I launch it I see an application with no products to configure. Do I ignore this or what?
You can ignore this.
The free Student products do not have any geometry interface products to install or configure.
Ansys customers with active commercial software licenses can access the
customer portal and submit support questions. You will need your active account number to register.
