Does anyone know where to find these? Is it possibly a bug in the installer? I tried to install it twice and both times the files are not there.

The free student products do not include any of the geometry interface products. i.e. The Solidworks and AutoCAD interfaces are not included.
You can import IGES and STEP neutral file formats, and Parasolid (*.x_T) files into ANSYS Student 18.1.
The ANSYS AIM Student 18.1 product uses ANSYS SpaceClaim for it's geometry engine, hence AIM Student can import many CAD geometry formats out of the box, no geometry interfaces need to be configured.
