I made the path changes. Everything looked good on the golden image. When we deployed out the image, I logged on to the system and opened up a new VM. The path changes where not retained on the VM. I am still getting the same error.
I tried installing Ironpython 2.7 on the VM and that worked. Ansys started.....
I was excited so I installed Ironpython 2.7 on the golden image. Once we redeployed again, I was back to square one. Same error as before. Even though Ansys is installed directly on the Golden Image, I have a feeling that our App Volumes is playing a part in this error.
So, since the fall semester is about to begin, I am giving up for now. The students will have Ansys on the physical machines, but will not have it on our VDI system.
I may play with it more latter in the semester and the Christmas break.
