Mechanical APDL is not opening. I am getting the following error,

"The Tcl command that was executed to submit your run failed with following error

Error: The directory name is invalid"

It was working fine sometime before. All other modules are working fine.

Thanks

Hi Krishna,

Launch 'Mechanical APDL Product Launcher' , then try changing the Working Directory.

Thanks,

Can you post the screenshot of the entire error message ?

Does your Working Directory contain any non-English letters ?

Hi Krishna,

Please try rearranging your Path environment variable so that 

C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;… entries are in front of everything else.

Also, I'm a bit concerned about your TEMP and TMP that have your username abbreviated, you can try changing this to be your full username.

Thanks,

Win
