If Ansys software isn't opening or components are missing or not functioning as expected, running the Ansys "Product & CAD Configuration" tool can solve many common issues.
- Improper or corrupt Ansys installation files or settings.
- From the Start Menu, browse to the folder ANSYS [Most Recent Version Installed] > locate Product & CAD Configuration [Ver XX] > Right click > select More > Run as Administrator
