Hi Tun-Ching Yang,
You can try the following two methods:
1) In the lower right corner of the Toolbox you will find a "view all/customize" buttion. This will open a window and checked applications wil show up in the Toolbox.
2) If approach 1 does not work -- complete exit the Ansys Mechanical Program-- click on the Start Button and enter the command %appdata%-- this will open a file manager window-- change folders to Ansys-- look for the folder named "v followed by version number", for example for 2023R1 - v231. Then rename it to an arbitrary name. Ansys Mechanical will recreate this folder the first time you restart Ansys Mechanical.
If both these approaches don't work, you can also try restarting the license server.
You might find the following video useful:
When very few systems show in the Ansys toolbox, this means workbench can’t access the license features for these analysis systems. If it is a license served from another machine, you can’t always restart the license server, and this may not be the solution anyway. You may just have a disconnection on your network to the license machine. You should be able to run the “Ansys Client License Settings” in the program menu, and then press “Features in Use.”
Older versions may require a different selection to get this information, such as “FlexNet Publisher License Status” or “Gather Diagnostics.” See if it can access the license server, if the daemon is up, and finally the features listed. There are several features that allow opening Mechanical for static structural or modal, buckling: ansys, preppost, mech_1, mech_2, etc…
It may also be that the license is up and the features exist, but if your company has few tasks of each feature, they may be all taken by other users. The number of licenses issued and in use will be reported for each feature.
You might need to specify the license port and host under the first selection: “License servers.”
