      Are you using the Free Student Version or Academic version that requires a license server?
      Under %TEMP%\.ansys

      You should see a .out file for fluent.

      What is the error displayed in that file?

      That is the transcript file.
      Under the %TEMP%\.ansys directory you will see a file that ends with .out for Fluent.

      This is a licensing debug file.

      What is in this file?
