New Licence Changes: ANSYS Campus Solutions Bundle

On January 29, 2021, CMC Microsystems staff installed a new licence file for our ANSYS software. Many of the features in this file have changed. Certain new programs have been added. Other programs have been removed. In this document we are outlining changes we find that affect our users. These checks have been done in an MS Windows 10, 64-bit environment. Note that this list is evolving as we perform more tests. ANSYS High-Performance Computing Features (All CAD tools) Features hfsshpc (ANSYS EDT) and aa_r_hpc (Fluent, Mechanical, etc.) have been replaced by feature anshpc (all ANSYS modules). These are part of a licence pool for all users of ANSYS through CMC Microsystems design network. If you explicitly reference older licence feature names, you must change those references in your scripts or files to anshpc. ANSYS Electronics Desktop (EDT) General Changes (2019 R1, R2 or R3) Academic licence features recognised by ANSYS 2019 are no longer part of our new licence file. These are features such as hfss_solvehfsshpc and so on. ANSYS 2019 cannot be configured to use newer features. Our recommendation is to upgrade your ANSYS installation to 2020 R2 or later. Contact cad@cmc.ca if these changes affect your research. General Changes (2020 R1, 2020 R2) When using our new licence file with your existing settings, an error will appear.
