    I have downloaded and installed this version on a Win 10 64bit machine and there seems to be a problem with the UPF subroutines. There is no v182\\custom\user\winx64 folder with the anscustom.bat and fortran subroutines as it is stated in the help. Instead there is \v182\customize\user\ folder with the Linux version of the anscustom file.

    Am I missing something? The installer didn't gave me on option to choose which ansys components to install (including the user programmable features).

    I would like to use the user programmable features to implement custom material model.

    I downloaded the "Ansys student" program from the link above and when I installed the program, I see it's called "ansys viewer 18.2".  How can I use this to do beam analysis?

    I think I see what I did wrong.  I'm tying to reinstall and follow these steps:

    Installation steps for the ANSYS Student products from Release 18.0 onward:

    • Extract (unzip) the downloaded installation files.
    • Right-click on setup.exe and select Run as Administrator. (This will run setup.exe from the extracted files.)
    • Read and accept the clickwrap to continue.
    • Click the right arrow button to accept the default values throughout the installation.
    • Click the exit button to close the installer.
    • The ANSYS Student software is now installed. Congratulations!

    Also can you please re-post your question as a new topic, not under this thread.

    Look for ANSYS Workbench 18.2, it should appear in your  start menu under the ANSYS 18.2 folder. 

    On my Windows 10 system is looks like this:
