      Hello friends,

      A few days ago I downloaded the student version of Ansys from this site -, and installed using the manual that was written on the same page.

      I needed to solve the problem of wing aerodynamics. I made a model, mesh, entered the parameters I needed for the calculation. But when I started the calculation, the program stopped with an error - "The solver failed with a non-zero exit code of : 2". In my project files I found an error file at the end of which was this -

      The student version has a limit of 512,000 elements in total. Can you please check if this limit is not exceeded in your Model?

      Thanks for the answer. The day I wrote this post, I noticed this, and reduced the number of elements from 900k to 400k, but solver still didn't want to work. Today, when I saw your answer, I ran the workbench, checked the number of polygons again, ran the solver, and it started working! I honestly don't know what happened! Probably, restarting the computer somehow helped the program, because I didnÔÇÖt do anything else with the computer or Ansys.
