I have downloaded "Ansys 18.2 (3.9 GB) Student version" to implement the FEA but unfortunately i couldn't be able to open the geometry. Every time i open it i get the error "Geometry editor was closed abnormally"

 

I looked for the solution but didn't get the proper answer.

 

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Looks like windows file registry issue. Could you please open Workbench by "Run as Administrator" option and see if that helps?

Ok. You can try this. Let me know if it works.

Step 1:

Go to product installation path: C:\Program Files\ANSYS Student\v182\commonfiles\configs\winx64\config

Run as Administrator: AnsConfigSpaceClaim.exe

Step 2: Run file “regedit.exe” from windows, go to view> say "Refresh" then search for folder "SpaceClaim.AnsysSCDM.182"

Make sure that SpaceClaim path is correctly listed based on your installation area. Restart your PC and open Workbench.

hello. I have the same problem too, when I start a new project of Design Assessment the second step is make a geometry to work, but at the moment of start the SpaceClaim, Ansys shows that message. then I close it and can make my figure, but when came back to the Workbench... it doesn't receive the archive.

Unsupported graphics card could be the problem. Could you please check whether you have ANSYS supported graphics card (NVDIA or AMD) in your system?

In the RUN command type: dxdiag , go to display and check the graphics card. 

Also, are you using any integrated graphics card?

Please review this document for ANSYS supported graphics cards.

Hi! 

I am not entirely sure what the reason of this might be, but I get the same error message after installing the software on a machine with Windows 7, whereas it works totally fine on Windows 10.

I did the steps above, but still have the same problem. as I can't open workbench, it appears as an unsaved project
