Loaded ansys 12.1 worked first time but took some time to reconise Inventor 2010 and 3dconnxion spacepilot. Everthing else is load as before and all is workinf fine. ANSYS could'nt help me and with the problem afte spending may hours with them by phone without succes. Dosn't tell me what the original problem was but could aford to wast more time on it.

Did you manage to solve it? I also have Win7 64bit ansys 13 with the same problem. Cant start meshing!
I managed to open meshing for an existing project I made on another computer with ansys 13. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not... dont ask me why...

I have solved the problem.My system is Win7 64bit and the software is ANSYS13.0.
Just shut down the firewall in your windows and your firewall software which you have installed .
Good luck to everyone!

I had the same prob. I solve it! When you install the ANSYS you select CATIA V4 and CATIA V5, if you install CATIA V5 you will fix the problem!

When I try to go from DM to Mechanical appear a fast a window that say: AnsysWBU.exe encountered a problem. A diagnostic file has been written: C:\DOCUME~1\carlo\IMPOST~1\Tem p\AnsysWBDumpFile.dmp, but I do not understand, also a I have a " microsoft visual c++ runtime library" problem.
I have try everything to solve the problem(reinstall windows 7, shut down anti virus and firewall,update the graphic drives..)I do not know how to solve this problem, the funy thing is that the first time I installed it was fine, but after 3 week it suddenly broke down.

I got solution.

I had ANSYS 12.1 in Windows 7, and when I wanted to edit geometry in a Workbench project, I got the same message.
Solution was simply updating drivers of my VGA card. In my case I have an Nvidia.

I wish you good luck!
