Hi,
I'm just starting with CFD and want to try free student version of ANSYS. So I got to the official site, downloaded it and follow the instruction. After turning on the programme there's an error:
"ANSYSLI exited or could not read server port ANSYSLI_DEMO_PORT."

I've tried almost everything. Searched internet, looked for advices from others and nothing. Could you help me?

Hello GenD,

I bet you did not create environment variable for the license file, or you did it wrong. I'm not sure why but that infomation/guide is not contained on the ansys student download page. Try this guide: http://www.ansys.com/-/media/Ansys/c...ation-help.pdf

Have a good one.

Thank you Sultzan, but...

So I was doing the procedure of guide, which you send, sultzan, but I came to problem. Where can I download - ansys_student_<yyyymmdd>.lic? But then I found the file called student.lic in Shared Files/Licensing, so I used it instead, created environment, etc. The ANSYS products appeared in START (they were not there previously), but after opening Workbench 18.2, the error stays the same. The toolbox is almost empty as it was.

I've also searched the FAQ of Ansys (http://www.ozeninc.com/wp-content/up...udent-faq3.pdf), but those advices did not solve my problems.

Any suggestions?

Well yes, that license file is really hard to find, wondering why they do this so hard.

Link would be: https://ansys13.ansys.com/student/an...e74db09878ffea

Or just go to student version download page -> prior releases -> download ansys 17.2 -> choose to download license file

Well you must be doing something wrong then. Make sure the variable is pointing to the proper license file, placed in a proper directory, for example C:\Programs\Ansys 17\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\ansys_student_20180831.lic. Also make sure the variable is named "ANSYSLMD_LICENSE_FILE". If that doesnt help then try reinstalling Ansys.

I've checked it hundreds of time. I reinstalled ANSYS 18.2, followed the procedure and nothing happened. Then I've done the same for ANSYS 18.1 and ANSYS 17. Every time I got the same error.

I don't know, what really is a problem, but I installed ANSYS on other computer and it works. No error. But on the first one, still the same.
