Please post the output of 'set' inline with text as ANSYS employees are not allowed to download it. Or you can post its screenshot inline.

What is the name of the installation package that you used ?

Do you have install.err file under ANSYS Student folder ? If so, please post its content.

Hi Kalpesh,

I had the same problem for over a week and I am relieved to find it RESOLVED!

My antivirus (Quick Heal) falsely identified some files (which included CFD/CFX post) during installation as ransomware.

Disabling your antivirus and then reinstalling ANSYS might help.

Mark this as thread SOLVED if this is your issue.

Sorry kalpesh04 , I've been away.

Let us know if Ayushp729's suggestion help with your issue.

 if the suggestion of ayushp729 didn't worked, disable the firewall and antivirus of both your Antivirus and windows defender and reinstall the ansys
