Ansys Student Installation with Errors – Urgent

    • JessG


      I've posted this question a week ago with no outcome, however, it is now becoming urgent so I'd appreciate any help! :)

      I've been trying to install Ansys Student 2021 R1 as well as 2020 R2 for a couple times now, but it always gave me the following error message:

      "The installation completed with warnings/errors. Review any .err or .log files in: C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS Student"

      I've pasted parts of the content of the .err file below (quite a bunch of errors so too long to paste the entire thing; they do seem to be repetitive though):

      ###### Error #######

        Error executing configuration script 'C:UsersJGAppDataLocalTempans_install_tmp49144configAnsConfigCommon.tcl'

      Any help is much appreciated!

      Many thanks,

      One for or but whilst they're still asleep, did you unzip the downloaded installer and run as admin?
