      Hi Matt, I downloaded the student version from the website. When I try and open up other products most of them have a licensing issue, but some do not run into an error and open.n

      Which Student version? Note, Student doesn't use the same licence system as the licenced versions (Teaching, Research & Commercial). n

      Array and Array This could be a permissions problem where the user is locked out of the registry. When logged in as the user, check to see if the following registry key exists:nHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\AppDatanIt should point to the user's APPLICATION DATA directory, C:\Users\username\AppData\RoamingnnOne alternative is to log in as administrator and set the following environment variable:nVariable: ANSYS_APPDATA_DIRnValue: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming.nYou can check the appdata location by opening up a Command Prompt and typing: cd %appdata%.nnThank you,nMattn

      Matt, I tried both suggestions. I checked to see if the registry key points in the right direction and everything checks out. The second suggestion was done, I created an environmental variable named it 'ANSYS_APPDATA_DIR and then put the value as 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming' but that did not help. I was signed into administrator to do this. If this helps, I tried to run the mechanical apdl 2020 r2 as admin and it worked, but when I tried on my user account it still came up with the licensing issue.n

      Hello,nPlease check if your normal user account has permissions to read the files from the ANSYS Student install path.nNormally student.lic file under C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\Shared Files\Licensing should be accessible to supply the licenses if you are using the Student installation package of ANSYS.nThank you.n

      Array , I do not know what you mean by checking if my normal account has permission to read the files. I followed the file path C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\ANSYS Student\Shared Files\Licensing and the student.lic is there, but how do I know my account has permission?.Array , I copied the command C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v202\ansys\bin\winx64\ANSYS202.exe -g -np 2 -lch -dir C:\temp -j test -s read -l en-us -t -d win32, into the command window and when I enter it says the system cannot find the path specified. I also do not know what you mean by tweaking the command line to match my requirements (look up command level in documentation). How do I look up command level in documentation?n
