PlugIn Error Attach Failed

    • rogelio.perez


      I am using Ansys  (2020 R1) in two of my courses and several students are struggling to get geometry imported (either iges, step, Parasolid, or native CAD files).

      I see this error has been submitted and solved in previous postings. However, this time it seems to be a bug, since importing a CAD file worked fine for me, right after installation, but not afterwards (even with the same CAD file).

      Thanks for your help,

      Hi Rogelio, 

      May I know what the error message is?

      make sure you have installed in with 'run as administrator' option. 

      make sure that you have write permissions to temp location. 

      Are you importing in SpaceClaim?
