Solution: This damn error is caused due to your Windows User Name.
You need to change your user name(dont use blank and any other special character, just use letters which found in english alphabet)
to do this: Remove Ansys 18.2
Windows + R > netplwiz > double click on accound, change your account name as stated above.
Damn, this shouldnt be so hard.

Please see this post also, it covers why you shouldn't use special characters in your account (and thus folder) names: https://forum.ansys.com/forums/topic/using-special-characters-in-your-installation-folder-name-read-this/
October 10, 2017 at 7:15 pmclsmyrSubscriberI think it is not related with install location, because I directly extracted installation files on C:ansys folder.
Also, I am from turkey and I have a Turkish specific character in my name. So my user name is not a fancy choice
Creators of an widely used engineering program should consider different alphabets found among world, dude it is 21th century.

After >15 years of ANSYS Workbench being available with many users in Turkey this issue hasn't been raised before. So I'm pleased that this Student Community allows you to share this feedback, so thank you - I'll pass this along to our installation development team for review. In the meantime you have your workaround, I admit its not ideal as it's your name, and you'd like to use it as it was intended.
October 11, 2017 at 12:07 amclsmyrSubscriberThank you sir, by the way I don't mean to be rude here. If I was rude I am sorry, maybe it's a Windows 10 issue.
I spent several hours on the computer. I reinstalled lots of stuff again and again. No solution. Really stressful for me before a serious deadline. I couldn't even reach the solver.

No problems. I can understand your frustration. I don't think this is a Windows 10 issue, rather it is case of getting our applications to support these additional characters. Our development team are aware and are looking into this as a future potential enhancement.

I have the same problem. Name of my user account is correct, only letters for English alphabet. I reinstalled and installed it. It doesn't work.
