Fluent Error “The geometry editor was closed abnormally”

      Hi all,


       I'm running into the error "The geometry editor was closed abnormally." whenever I try to open SpaceClaim or create a mesh using fluent in workbench. I can open SpaceClaim on its own but not via workbench.


      To get around the issue, I created my model in SpaceClaim first and then loaded the file into the geometry cell in workbench. However, I get "The geometry editor was closed abnormally." again when I try to create the mesh and I couldn't work around this one.


      I've followed the suggestions on this thread:

      but non of the suggestions worked.


      Any insight into what is causing the issue and potential solutions is greatly appreciated!

      Hi again,


       I kept trying things and finally something worked! Here is what worked for me:


      "


      go to


       


      C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS Studentv192commonfilesconfigswinx64unconfig


       


      then right click on AnsUnconfigSpaceClaim.exe and 'run as administrator'


       


      now, go to 


       


      C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS Studentv192commonfilesconfigswinx64config


       


      then right click on AnsConfigSpaceClaim.exe and 'run as administrator'


      "
