Ansys Mechanical unable to solve

    • Teja Dolzycki

      Hi I always get the error that AnsysWBU.exe encountered a problem when I try to solve a static-mechanical model.

      I am using the 2023 R2 student version.

      I have reinstaled Ansys several times using admin rights.

      I start workbench as admin.

      I've tried creating several simple models using tutorials, but allways get the same error as above when trying to solve.

      Also I've tried Opening CMD as admin and typing:

      regsvr32.exe ole32.dll
      regsvr32.exe atl.dll
      regsvr32.exe oleaut32.dll
      regsvr32.exe scrrun.dll
      regsvr32.exe jscript.dll
      regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll

      as well as renaming the Ansys folder in %temp% and %appdata%.

      I am using Windows 10 Pro with:

      AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core Processor, 3800 MHz, 6 Kern(e), 12 logische(r) Prozessor(en),

      NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, (newest drivers installed)


      That's one model:


      When analysing the diagnostic file I get:

      I'd really appriciate some help. I've been trying all day to get Ansys to run and solve tht error but no solution I've tried worked.

      Hi Teja

      Try turning of Hyperthreading, AMD may use a different term, in the BIOS the try again.  While there make sure nothing is over/under clocked.  Once done you may want to stress test the system with something outside of Ansys like the Prime95 stress test:



    • Gary Stofan

      0xc0000005 is related to permissions or some type of restriction.

      Exception code c0000005 is the code for an access violation. That means that your program is accessing (either reading or writing) a memory address to which it does not have rights.

      Are there any sort of virus scan or endpoint protections programs active?


    • Teja Dolzycki


      thanks for the answers! 

      Sadly turning of multithreading didnt help. I let the stresstest run for 30 min and had zero issues or errors.

      I only have microsoft defender running, turning that off didnt help either.

      You may have run across a bug 882389 when Mechanical queries Engineering Data Material names. 
      Can you try to install 2023R1 to see if issue is same?
