"Critical Error" During Installation
Hello there Ansys Team,
In efforts to install the Student version of Ansys, I have encountered an issue that I was not able to solve. I hope it could be resolved with your help.
Some background: I recently installed a new hard drive, an HDD, on which I hope to store all of my "heavy" applications. I initialized the drive and titled it the "D" drive. I have done so as the OME "C" drive (an SSD) has reached storage capacity; beyond the minimum required by the Ansys specs. It seems that the new drive is operating nominally.
When attempting to install Ansys using the install Wizard, I chose the desired directory by changing the default selection from "C" to the "D" drive, but I repeatedly receive the following error " Critical Error" (see attachment). I assume that the error is due to the choice of directory, but I may be wrong. I reached this conclusion as the Ansys requirement list states that "Local C Drive to be present".
Unfortunately, I am unable to test the install in the "C" drive as it full to the brim with needed software.
What are my options?
The download was attempted on 03/29/21 from the following link:
Thank you for your help,
