June 10, 2022 at 1:23 pmRobAnsys EmployeeMore details would help. What's it crashing into?
June 10, 2022 at 2:33 pmnkharelSubscriberWhen I open the mechanical it opens, but after I press any key it closes automatically. I have been working in ANSYS for the past 5-6 months and it was working fine. But this problem suddenly arose 2 days back. I tried re-installing ANSYS but it didn't help.

Try the following:
Close All ANSYS Aqpplications.
Open Windows file explorer and type in the following in the addres line:
This should take you to
\AppData\Roaming\AnsysThere will be a directory named:
v221 (for 2022 R1)
rename this to v221.old
now try to restart
If this doesn't work, there will be a directory named WorkbenchLogs
Check the log files in there for errors.
June 11, 2022 at 5:31 pmnkharelSubscriberI changed the directory name and now it works fine.
Thank you @Geo Karnos.
June 18, 2022 at 2:55 pmnkharelSubscriberMy ANSYS Mechanical is still crashing. It crashes after the first click during startup. When I change my directory name to v221.old it works for 15-20 minutes and crashes. I have to change the directory name daily. The following message appears during first startup.
