Licensing error with student version

      I downloaded the student version of Ansys so that I can use Mechanical APDL for a class this semester. However, I get the error message, shown below, when I open launcher or APDL.

      Things to note:

      I downloaded and installed Ansys 2020 R2 and got this error and thought it may have been a compatibility issues. So I uninstalled 2020 R2 and installed 2020 R1. When I noticed that the error also occurred in 2020 R1, I uninstalled R1 and reinstalled R2 so that I can fix the issue on the latest version.

      Hey subhamdasnI came accross this too and gave it a try, but still not working. License directories seem to be a little different between the 2019 and 2020 version. n
