      Hoping someone can help. When tyring to solve a model I get the error 'An unknown error occured during solution' I have tried creating a new project and starting again but it always fails when solving. Using Ansys 2022 Student.

      I see that you have

           1 GPU ACCELERATOR DEVICES REQUESTED
      Does the model run when you do not use GPU?
