      I am trying to use PyMAPDL. But I am getting licence error. We have Mechanical Pro Version. Is there MAPDL in Mechanical Pro ?

      LicenseServerConnectionError
      Failover feature 'ANSYS Mechanical Enterprise Solver' is not available.

      Hi

       

      The issue is here that the run needs an Ansys Mech. Enterprise solver, but you have a Pro so that is what it says.

       

      All the best

      Hi shrav007

      PyMAPDL questions are best asked on its GitHub page here:

      https://github.com/pyansys/pymapdl/discussions

      Try the launch_mapdl option license_type='mesh_1'  The option is shown in the PyMAPDL documentation here:

      https://mapdl.docs.pyansys.com/contribution_and_api/_autosummary/ansys.mapdl.core.launch_mapdl.html
