      Hi Savino,

      This can be due to corrupt files, can you please download and have a fresh installation for Electronics?

    • Savino Giovanni Muscio

      No no, this is not true. In the folder dowloaded is missing the file data.5

      I tried to dowload two time and each time this file missing.

      Any help?

      Hi Savino,

      You installed an ISO image right? 

      Can you please extract the file and then point the setup to that extracted file?

      Please see if these links helps 4.1. Downloading the Installation Files (ansys.com)  3.1. Downloading the Installation Files (ansys.com)

      Please confirm if you are following these steps:

      • Windows - Extract the contents of the ISO file to a temporary directory, using an archiving utility such
      as Winrar, Winzip, or 7zip. Run setup.exe from the top level folder.
      • Linux - Mount the image, using "mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso" command. Run
      "./INSTALL" from the top level folder

      Can you go to event viewer and check if any Error is shown?

      Go to START > Event Viewer > Expand the Windows Logs and choose Application.

      I remuved the anti-virus software from my laptop, tried to install again the software and at the end the same windows error was showed to me but now there are no error in event log.

      Hi Savino,

      Can also try to rename the Ansoft folder, goto Documents-->Ansoft rename it to Ansoft.old and try again to reinstall. Also in event viewer check application and security logs both to see if any error gets logged into it.
