      To renew ANSYS student version license without changing the version or performing a new installation, please use following steps. 


      - Go to


      https://www.ansys.com/academic/free-student-products


      Then download one of the following three packages available on this page


      Discovery Live Student : STUDENTDISCOVERY_###_WINX64.zip


      ANSYS AIM Student : AIMANSYSACADEMICSTUDENT_###_WINX64


      ANSYS Student : ANSYSACADEMICSTUDENT_###_WINX64.zip 


       


      Note: Any package and any version that is currently available on the page is OK.


       


      - Unzip the package that you just downloaded, then look for the folder named ‘student’


      - In this ‘student’ folder, you will see WINX64.7z . Extract (‘unzip&rsquo this file


      - Go inside the unzipped WINX64  -> Shared Files -> Licensing -> Here, you will see 'student.lic' file


       -Copy this 'student.lic' file to where ANSYS is currently installed on your machine default location to replace your old ‘student.lic’ file in your installation directory.

      Is there any possibilities of getting only licences file instead of downloading of Giga Bytes of file for a KB file.

      How to update the license? I couldn't find the analysis system in the toolbox. Is this an error due to the license? I am currently using the student version. Someone please help me with this.

      Hi guys.. I just have a question.  For example i download ansys student 2019 R2 again and replace my old 'student.lic' file with a new one... since the built-in license for R2 is only until 05/30/2020, does that mean that it will still be the deadline even if I already replaced the old 'student.lic' file??? Thank you.

      Yes, you'll need 2019R3 or 2020R1 to extend the licence.

      Hi, I have the same problem of Yolandevis. I download Accademic Ansys two days ago and the first time I open, it work, but from the second time it tell me that "mechanical editor does not have a valid license". I try to re-install the program and to replace "student.lic" but does non work. Please help me.

      Hi, so it means that there is no way to keep using the old version once the license expired. We have to download and install the new version for a valid license?

      I've tried the above process to renew my ANSYS 2019R2 version but to no avail. Now that I've uninstalled and deleted all ANSYS app in my laptop, can any new version work for my previously simulated projects? nCan I reinstall 2019R2 n

      Old projects should read into the newer versions of the code; make sure you read the messages as the model loads in case any defaults are different. n

      I am trying to do this with the 2020 version. I download the files for the 2021, extracted them, I go to student, then unzip the WINX64.7z. However, the only file in there is a folder called licensingclient , and inside of that. Just a file labeled .acldata n

      It changed for 2021R1, there is a sticky in the Student Software section. The 2020R2 licence is valid until about August. n
