Hello,

I installed ansys 12.1 and its license manager to vista laptop. afterwards, i adapted the license file with my host name and flex id. when i try to run license wizard, i get "access denied", 3 times after i hit continue button. and the status are still :

ANSYS, Inc. License Manager status:
Licensing Interconnect: not running
Licensing Interconnect Monitor: not running
FLEXlm: not running

does anyone have an idea what might be the problem?

Heya

start the ANSYS License Client Admin Utility.
Go to " Set License Preferences for User ***** "
and then set Global Settings to "Use Academic Licenses"

guess you are a student...does it works ?

Hi Daniel,

I just tried that, first it asked if i wish to set 12.0.1 0r 12.1, i chose 12.1.
but then i got "failed to retrieve license preferences. please be sure that you are able to connect the license server"

i am a master student and working as well. i ll use it for training purposes at home.

You can't do this. The INCREMENT lines in the license file are created for a particular machine.

You will either need network access to the actual license server to check out licenses, or you will need to look into license borrowing.
