Error when running simulation in Mechanical

    • djnckln

      Hi all,

      I need help regarding an error that I am getting when using Mechanical. I was using Ansys 18.1 and have been updated to 2021 R2. I am running the same simulation for testing purposes. I was able to run in 18.1 but now I get the following error.

      "An error occurred while starting the solver module. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section in the Ansys Mechanical User Guide for more information"

      I cannot find anything helpful in the user guide that may help with this. In the solve process settings I have unchecked "distribute solution". I am sure that it isn't my model as I have ran this on another machine without issues and had no issues when running 18.1.

      Does anyone have any suggestions.

      Please help.

      This error can occur if the Project is saved to a network drive or OneDrive folder.
      Save the project to a local folder i.e C:\test and see if the solver runs properly.

      Thank you for your message and for your help.
      I have tried your suggestion but I get the error " An unknown error occurred during solution. Check solver Output on the Solution Information object for possible causes."
      I am undertaking modal analysis on a simple geometry.

      When I evaluate results, I get the following errors:
      "The result file C:\Users\MSI-USER\Desktop\Ansys\Tube with parameters_files\dp0\SYS\MECH\file.rst cannot be opened."
      "Current result file may not contain requested result data C:\Users\MSI-USER\Desktop\Ansys\Tube with parameters_files\dp0\SYS\MECH\file.rst. Please clear the solution and solve again."
      "An error occurred when the post processor attempted to load a specific result. Please review all messages."
      Thank you for your help.
