So ive been trying to install the discovery student. Initially I kept getting the issue of:

"2021/10/20 23:00:44  ERROR        C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v212\licensingclient\winx64\lmutil.exe does not exist

2021/10/20 23:00:44  ERROR        C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v212\licensingclient\winx64\lmutil.exe does not exist

2021/10/20 23:00:44  ERROR        "C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v212\licensingclient\winx64\ansyscl.exe" does not exist.

2021/10/20 23:00:44  CONNECT_ERROR    16167:1,16166:1      

etc."


I resolved this by creating said folders at said location "C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v212\licensingclient\winx64", finding those missing files in the installation file and putting them as requested by the log.

That solved some. But I cannot find anywhere this file. If anyone knows the location of it. let me know

    so i found the file in the 2020 version easily. I tried the 2020 file in the 2021 and this is the result:

    Try the following:

    In the extracted free student download, you should see a directory named:

    clclient

    under this directory, you should see a file named: WINX64.7z

    Extract this file to: C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\v212

    This should create a directory named: licensingclient which will contain a directory named: winx64

    The missing executables should now exist under that directory.

    Now try and run.

    I just solved it by installing the R1 2021. It had the proper installation files and worked first time. Once the R1 licence server files was installed, the r2.1 worked fine. I tested it with 3 computers. All have the same story. No licence in 2.1, but there is a licence file in r1. Once you install both R1 and R2.1. Both work. So you should probably install your latest on a brand new pc without previous files hidden in system files and troubleshoot your installer.
