Administration Installation Post Configuration of CAD Products Failing.

    • Stephen Emert


      I am an IT administrator working on our silent deployment of Ansys 23.1.

      Ansys seems to install fine, but after the installation, I configure the CAD products with this command:



      The majority of my plugins configure as expected, but Solidworks fails.

      The log shows:


      SW Registration ExitCode 3  -- expecting 0


      This is version 23.1 of Ansys and SolidWorks 2023 SP2.

      Are these error codes documented anywhere?

      Hello, SolidWorks 2023 SP2 is not tested for Ansys 2023R1. So it is not supported.

      Thanks, VJ. I have bookmarked that for the future. Now to see how the CoE wants to proceed.
