Hi, had exactly the same problem but used the following tip (though for V13)UNABLE TO START THE MECHANICAL EDITOR
My system is Win7 professional 64bit and the software is ANSYS13.0.
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.
Please I need help
Hey,we solved the problem (or to be more precise, ANSYS Support Team sorted me out). In my case, it turned out, the error occured due to overwriting of some files after my operating system installed a couple of updates. The updates triggered the script error that hindered mechanical in the workbench to open.How we solved it? We got rid of the old Workbench 12.0 profile and allowed it to reconstruct a new one. How: 1. renamed the '.ansys' directory in %temp% to 'ansys_old' 2. renamed the 'ansys12.0' and 'v120' directories in %appdata% directory to 'ansys12.0_old' and 'v120_old' resp. 3. restarted simulation in workbench 4. carry on simulations like nothing happenedHave a lot of fun!
-only diference was I reoved the 3 ansys realted folders that I saw in the "temp" folder. Seems like windows updates disrupt this folder
