How to fix “Geometry editor was closed abnormally”

      Hi.


      I decided to create a model using  Static StructularUnfortunately, i couldn't be able to open the geometry. I get an error "Geometry editor was closed abnormally". 


      I looked for the solution but didn't get the proper answer.


      I use ANSYS Student 19.2 and Windows 10.

      1. Does this happen for each and every project or a specific project?


      2. Can you try to open a simple cube or similar model and see if that opens?


      If it happens with each and every model including simple cube, this may point towards installation issue, If this happens for a specific file check if you are exceeding the limits for the bodies and/or faces that can be used in the student version (if you are using one).

      1) I got this error for each project (Fluid Flow(CFX), Steady-State Thermal, Thermal-Electric...).


      2) If I understand you, I can import ( cube, cylinder) a simple model to geometry, but when I choose Model in Static Structular, i have an error:

      Go to %temp% and clear files. 


      Go to %appdata%/Ansys and rename say R192 to old_R192


      Make sure that you dont have any special character in the names. 


      Then open Design Modeler and check. 


      If this does not help then please uninstall the package and reinstall it.

      If I start workbench first time, then I use Geometry  without errors (It's strange. First, everything works, and then no). If i start workbench second time, i have an error again.



      If this does not help then please uninstall the package and reinstall it. 



      It's not help me. I have a idea. I want to install old version ansys student (18,17,16). Where will i find it?

      On the same page, https://www.ansys.com/en-in/academic/free-student-products


      If you scroll to the bottom you will find prior releases upto R18.2

      I install 18.2 version, but i have an error again. It`s strange. Probably a problem with Windows 10

    • Keyur Kanade

      Windows 10 is supported for 18.2
