How do we restart a job from windows command prompt line after it failed due to an error?

      Hello everyone,

      I am currently testing the launching of ANSYS analysis using a windows command line. I had recently run an static analysis that ran for several hours on my computer but failed due to an element error. The error along with restart information can be seen below.

      You need a .rnnn file to restart. The command for restarting will be something like below:
      antype,,restart ! start from last time point
      ..... ! apply/modify any loads or solution controls
