Ansys Fluent 2023 R1 cannot initialize licensing context

    • Emmaleigh Hawkins

      Hello, I am experiencing the following error in my console when I try to run Ansys Fluent:

      'Cannot initialize ANSYS Licensing context

      Connected License Server List:


      ANSYS LICENSE MANAGER ERROR:ANSYSLI exited or could not read server port ansyscl.-DESKTOP...'


      When I run the Licensing Settings 2023 R1, all seems to be well and the licensing servers seem to be fine. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times (including making sure to download the license manager along with the fluent software) and I am still getting this error. Where should I be looking to find the issue (license file, wrong directory, etc.)? Any input would be helpful, thanks!

      Is your License Server listed correctly in the folllowing file:
      c:\Program Files\Ansys Inc\Shared Files\licensing\ansyslmd.ini
