ANSYS 17.2 Download

      I am needing ANSYS 17.2 for a class and it is not on the "Prior Versions" list. I found an old community post that I downloaded the software, but I need a license for the software.


      Should I download a completely new program of 17.2 or should I just get a license?

      Hi agoff59,


      I am assuming that you are talking about ANSYS Student version (free version) for v17.2.


      If that is the case and if you still have the installation package (even if the license in there has expired), you can just use that package and try my workaround described in here

      to renew license.


      Let us know if this helps.


      Thanks,

      Hey tsiriaks,


      I am actually not sure if I have the free version for v17.2. I found the download on an older post in the Student Community and downloaded it there. I am not sure if I have done everything correct to run the v17.2. I ran the setup.exe and then the setupLM.exe and went to the ANSYS License Management Center and tried using the license given but am given this message:



      Am I doing this all correctly?

      Hi agoff59,


      You can't use the license file from free student version to host on License Manager.


      If you want to host a license on License Manager, you must have either (paid) academic teaching or research licenses. 


      If you don't have a paid license and can't find the installation package of student version v17.2, I'd recommend to go for student version 18.2 instead.


      Thanks,


      Win

      If you already have the product installed, you can update the license by following my instructions here
