Try cleaning up the %APPDATA%\Ansys\vNNN folder to see if it resolves the issue. 

Exit Ansys completely.

In the File Explorer address field

Enter: %APPDATA%

…An Explorer Window will open

Open the Ansys folder…

Rename the vNNN folder to vNNN.old for the appropriate version.


( v221 = 2022R1, v212 = 2021R2, v192 = 19.2 etc)

If you see a windows popup asking you if you want to permit the ACT tool running make sure you click OK to allow ACT tool to run in your computer.
