Hi Sean, 

Please note you have to open Ansys licensing Settings as admin to save the changes.

If you don’t have admin access on your client machine, follow the below steps to correct server’s name:

  • Open file explorer and go to path “C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing”.
  • Open the file named ansyslmd.ini.
  • Add the correct license server name and save the file on the desktop.
  • From Desktop replace that file with the given path “C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing”
  • Close all the applications and relaunch them.


please note that if ansys applications and license server are on the same machine, we can mention localhost / instead of the server name.
