Installation and Licensing

Q&A around getting started with Ansys software

    • Soheil Yousefnejad

      Hi all,

      I'm trying to use Maxwell 3D to simulate a simple structure. However, every time I'm getting a license error. I should say that it was working till 2 weeks ago but the simulations are not able to analyze since 2 weeks ago (it has errors). also, the simulation in Ansys is analyzed in 2D properly. We should have access to the full license of Ansys electronics so this error seems to be strange.

      The error message says the following:

      " [error] Failover feature 'Ansys Electronics Premium Maxwell' is not available. Request name elec_solve_maxwell does not exist in the licensing pool. No such feature exists. Feature: elec_solve_maxwell License path: 1055@LICENSE-02; FlexNet Licensing error:-5,147 (7:02:26 AM Feb 19, 2023) [error] Simulation was terminated by license error. (7:02:26 AM Feb 19, 2023)."
