      Hi everyone, 

      Please, what is the reason for this?

      Moving to Installation and Licensing.

      Are you using the student version?

      The reason is in the message and as far as I know it cannot be avoided (till now)

      Hello mekafime,

      If you have four cores on your computer, and you are using ANSYS 19, then you can improve the time by using those cores as described here. With ANSYS 19, four cores comes with the solver license. With older versions of ANSYS, only 2 cores came with the solver license, but you could purchase HPC licenses to use more cores. 

      You can see if the license server has HPC licenses when you open the Client ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility > View Status > Display License Status. If you see HPC in the list of licenses, you can use those automatically, even in older versions of ANSYS by using the link above to specify number of cores in the Solve Process Settings.

      You should also check if the solution was solving entirely within RAM (in-core) or not (out-of-core) by looking at the Solver Output. Search for the word core.  If the solution was solved out-of-core, then you can reduce the solve time by upgrading the RAM in your computer. If you have 4 GB of RAM, you could purchase new RAM cards to upgrade to 8 GB or 16 GB or higher. You have to check the specifications for your specific computer, because it was designed for a particular kind of RAM card and has a designed-in limit for how much RAM it can address.
