Hi Vikas,

Can you make entries in the host file: (You will require admin access)

·        Open the HOSTS file on the client machine and add the license server name and IP of the license server in that hosts file.

·        Path: “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc “ as per the following format in your client machine :


IP address             Hostname of server     FQDN                                                 //IP address of server and name. You can also add FQDN.

·        Add the below-mentioned line at the end of hosts file.


·        Once the entry is added save the file.

·        Launch the Ansys application.

If you face any issues, send screenshot of it.
