      The Workbench Extensions Manager is not able to initialize the Extensions. I allready tried to reinstall everything and check the license settings. What is the problem?

Change to,nFormat: EnglishnApplynOKnMake sure that the decimal system is set to dot '.' not comma ',' (under 'Additional Settings')nnWith this setting, if ACT extensions still fail to load. Does the error messages produced change?.If ACT still fails. The failure can also occur if the path variable has special characters or a double instance of the ; character in it.nnDoes the error change if Workbench is run using the following steps?.Start/All Program/Accessories/Command PromptnIn the resulting command prompt run the commandsnnset path=C:\Windows\System32ncd /D '%appdata%nmove Ansys 'Ansysold%time::=%'ncd ..\Localnmove Ansys 'Ansysold%time::=%'n'C:\program files\ANSYS Inc\v194\Framework\bin\Win64\runwb2.exe'nexitnnDoes ACT extension loading still fail?
