      Please can you re-post the image? Staff are not permitted to open attachments. As an aside, R14.5 is over 10 years old now, you may find several improvements by updating to 2022R1 (v23 in old money).

      Might be worth showing him 2022R1 it looks much the same but is significantly improved.
      That error suggests the computer can't see the licence. When you say you installed the licence, do you mean you pointed the manager at the Campus system or that you copied a file onto your machine? One for I suspect. I just break computers!

      I second Rob's comment:
      That error suggests the computer can't see the license.
      When you say you installed the license, do you mean you pointed the manager at the Campus system or that you copied a file onto your machine?
      Is MSI the hostname of where the license is installed?
      If you check the license.log file:
      c:\Program Files\Ansys Inc\shared files\licensing\license.log
      Does it show any errors?

      The manager i means license manager which copy from the installation zip file from my lecturer. MSI the is hostname of my laptop and also the license is also installed on the laptop. For the license log file, it does not shows any error

      The "normal" licences are tied to a specific computer/server so can't be shared like that. For a University, you'd typically install the software and licence manager locally, and point the latter at a Uni server. There's also a reasonable chance that R14.5 won't understand Win10, I think we were moving from XP to Win7 at the time it came out....
