Pro E 2 and ANSYS 12??
Does ProE2 work with ANSYS12?
I got the problem with CAD configuration

when i tried to run Ansys CAD configuration manager
Input Values are...
-PROELOADPOINT C:\Program Files\proeWildfire 2.0
-PROE_START_CMD C:\Program Files\proeWildfire 2.0\bin\proe1.bat

Unigraphics Config WB --- NO
Unigraphics Config ICEM --- NO
Pro/Engineer Config WB --- NO
Pro/Engineer Config ICEM --- NO

Prerequisites ..... Configure Success
PE WorkBench ..... Not Configured -- Invalid Pro/Engineer Version

I could not import model from proe to ansys.
many thanks

export your proE geometry in STEP-file, and import it in Ansys

Can i do meshing in Pro/mechanical and import directly to ANSYS PRE?

I don't think so.
You will have more liberty to mesh your geometry within Ansys rather than in Pro-M

Back to your original question...

ANSYS Workbench supports Pro/E all the way thru Wildfire4...

Workbench also supports ANSYS Mechancial APDL (AKA Classic), or you could use the newer ANSYS Mechanical app (AKA ANSYS Simulation) and you can use the new ANSYS Meshing app with either or mesh in Mechanical APDL.

Try out Workbench 12 and see if it meets your needs, it should work with your current licenses.

Thanks anyway, I found out that I should reconfig ProE with Ansys again.
