      Can anyone tell me how to install ANSYS Workbench? I've donwloaded the files from Free Student Software website and have ran the installation but can't open the software. It doesn't see any licenses or whasovere. There is no icon to start it either, only Uninstall and ProductConfig. How do I run this software?

      Hello Filip,

      How to install:

      1. Unzip the downloaded zip file ( to a temporary directory.
      2. Browse to that directory and right-click on setup.exe and choose more->run as administrator

      You can check the install.log file for any errors:
      C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\install.log
      C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\install.err (if exists)

      Also, may be due to virus protection blocking installation.
