Hi Ben

Please see the following:  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211861

I think (not a developer so I’m not 100% up on this issue) that most Fortran compilers don’t yet support Apple silicon (i.e. their own cpus).  If you look at the Ansys Inc platform support document (link available where you downloaded the student version) you will see that we support x86 cpus from Intel and AMD.  

I’m not sure sure Rosetta 2 will work here since I cannot test it (and I don’t personally own a Mac with a M1 to try out).
