Designmodeler (DM)
 
Hi

I've just installed Ansys 12.1 in my machine (windows seven 64 bits) and I can't start the designmodeler from the workbench, there isn't an error message. Before I formated my computer (yesterday), all tools used to work correctly. Anybody has a suggestion?

Thanks!

Hello!

You might have some issues with your license manager. I advice you to start first Anslic_admin_utility, run the server and after that open the Ansys Workbench

How about providing the actual error?

When I didn't run the anslic_admin_utility first, it gave me an error about the server which wasn't running and in Ansys Workbench I couldn't open Design Modeler and in toolbox weren't all the modules.

Thank you, but I solved my problem. It wasn't a problem with anslic_admin utility. Actually, I had not installed all the requirements before, I saw that in the install log.

Congratiulations! I never thought about that possibility.

Could you please better explain how did you solve this problem? Is my first time with ANSYS and I can not open DM as you. I get also any error messages.

Many Thanks,
Gianni

1. No matter the antivirus software you're using, I recommend you to close it. To do this: Start -> Run -> services.msc /s and from here you may shut down the antivirus.
2. Install Ansys Prerequisites (from the autorun) then Ansys.
3. Install the License Manager
4. Start anslic_admin utility from Start -> Programs -> Ansys the run the server.
(Set to automatic this untility from services.msc /s).
6. Start the Workbench or Mechanical APDL (depending on what do you need).

If you still have problems with getting it running, send me a message.

Good Luck

Hi,
I still have problem. As you can see in the CADConfigurationMgr.log at the end there is written that "Couldn't open CoCreate registry Software\CoCreate\SolidDesigner, product not installed"
Here the configuration of my installation :
http://yfrog.com/79immagineydp

Which server should I use? this:
http://yfrog.com/86immaginexfp
or this:
http://yfrog.com/f3immagine2mmp

Many thanks,
Gianni

I guess that error it's because you have not installed SolidDesigner before. But it's not an issue. After you run the anslic_admin utility and start de server, from start -> programs ->ansys 12.1 lpen the workbench.

weird
 
Hi All,

I have a weird problem. Up to yesterday, everything was working fine. I could open everything from the workbench.
Yesterday I tried to open the DesignModeler and I couldn't. No error message, no nothing. The new windiw (where the DM supposed to open) remains grey and that's it. The same happens when I try to open the Mesher.
However I can open the Fluent without any problem.
I reinstalled the whol software, and the same problem still remains. I don't have any idea what is the problem, since there is no error message, and in the last half year, there wasn't any problem.
Do you have any advice?
Thank you in advance.

Verify the firewall isn't blocking anything related to Ansys. Start de server before and then run the Workbench. If still isn't working, use a registry cleaner to delete all the entries related to Ansys, and reinstall it afterwards.

Thank you very much for your reply. I have switched of my firewall, and still doesn't work :( I will uninstall and clean everything from the registry. Hopefully, it will work.

Still doesn't work :( I'm getting frustrated :confused:

Secu November 18, 2010 17:03

Same problem as before or is it something new? Try to install Ansys while the antivirus it's shoted down (not from task manager, but from services).

Prefectly the same :( I have tried to reinstall, while the intivirus was shut down :( (I cleaned the registry perfectly before the reinstall)

I don't know what advices to give you anymore. Your problem overcomes me.

Far February 26, 2012 13:19

I had exactly this problem.

1. Run Server admin utility and found that some services were not running. stop the server and start it again. This did not solve my problem related to design-modeler. It is important in a way that this step ensures that the license is in use. So this is first step before finding any solution.

2. Turn off the firewall and antivirus. This solved my problem.

3. It is very strange that this only happens with DM, all other applications open normally.

PS: I am using AVAST anti virus
