If you receive a license error when starting Ansys, you will likely need to change your license setting from commercial to academic.
To check out the proper ANSYS license:
- Click and run “User License Preferences” (Start -> All Programs -> ANSYS 12.1 -> ANSYS Client Licensing -> User License Preferences.).
- Click the “Use Academic Licenses” radio button in the “Global Settings” section, then click “OK” to exit.
