      Hello,


      I'm trying to install and run ANSYS 2020 R1 student version. But after all the installation is done the program is nowhere to be found in the computer.


      -I downloaded the program from the web site


      -extracted the files


      -run as admin the setup.exe file


      -Agree with the terms and conditions 


      -selected the file to store


      -then search for it and nothing.


      Is there something wrong in my steps or can this be resolved by other means?


      If any other info is needed please let me know


      Thank You.

      Open CMD Prompt, then type


      "%awp_root201%FrameworkbinWin64runwb2.exe"


      Does this launch Workbench successfully ?


      Do you have an install.err file under (default) C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS Student

      Hello tsiriaks,  


       


      The CMD step launched the program successfully. I got a license error  but when relaunching the the error is not showing


      The instal.err is not in the files.


       


      How can this be resolved?

      So your installation is probably fine. It's just the issue with shortcut


      Browse to your ANSYS installation directory (default) C:Program FilesANSYS IncANSYS Studentv201


      then, right click on productconfig.exe and 'run as administrator'


      select Configure Products and make sure you select all products on the list and hit next.


      Does this make any difference with the shortcut ?

      nIn the Start Menu, you can find a product you want easy access to, such as Workbench. Right click on that and select Pin to Start. Then you will get a tile that makes it very easy to start Workbench. You can do the same for SpaceClaim or any other product.n
