Is the standalone Spaceclaim application opening without any issues? If yes, please try these suggestions and check if the issue is resolved after each suggestion.

  1. Open Workbench and verify if Tools > Options >Geometry Import >Use SpaceClaim Direct Modeler as External CAD is NOT checked. Also, make sure SpaceClaim Direct Modeler is selected as Preferred geometry editor.
  2. Open Product & CAD Configuration Manager from START menu as Administartor> Install Required prerequisites. After installing, click on Unconfigure Products and CAD> Select all > Hit Next. After Unconfiguring, click on Configure Products and CAD> Select all and hit Next. Open workbench again.
  3. Open CAD Configuration Manager from START menu as Administartor > Check Spaceclaim>Hit Next> Configure Selected CAD Interfaces.
  4. Run this command as administartor in command prompt:

reg add HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SpaceClaim.AnsysSCDM.2xx /v Path /t Reg_Sz /d "C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v2xx\SCDM"
