ANSYS 2022 R1 “Graphics driver verification and setup error” when installing


    • KHarkin

      After installing ANSYS student the error log quoting "Graphics driver verification and setup error" is given and I cannot start the application (full error log below). Any ideas on how to fix this, the graphics card I'm using is the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics Card for context.

      Hey @KHarkin !
      The most common reason for graphics issues is because you have an older or unsupported graphics card/driver installed on your system.
      Could you please check whether you have ANSYS supported graphics card (NVDIA or AMD) in your system.
      In the RUN command type: dxdiag , go to display and check the graphics card.
      Please review this document for ANSYS supported graphics cards: Graphics Cards Tested (
      Could you also try downloading and installing the latest driver for your graphics card.

      Hi Ansys Team,

      I am also facing the same problem, my system display adapter is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. Can you please confirm, is there is any option for Ansys to support for this adapter.
