Formula Student License Problem

    • Kian.ahi


      we got free Software for our Formula Student Team(Ansys 18.2) and I wanted to install it and it didnt really work. It always had License error after i tried again to open Icem it suddenly worked. But I had to reinstall Windows and sice then it just wont work.

      I installed the software but it always gives me the Initialization Error For details please refer to the message box. 

      I tried everything with the License Management Server and to create my own variables but I cant get it to work. 

      Thank you for your help.

      It sounds like you are using academic/commercial versions, which requires licenses hosted on ANSYS License Manager.

      You can try using the free student packages from here

      This doesn't need any licensing because the license file is already included with the installation package and is placed in the correct directory (default)

      C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS StudentShared FilesLicensingstudent.lic

      This does not need ANSYS License Manager to host it.

      Thank you,
