I was able to install Fluent 12.1 on Windows 7. However, when I start Fluent, it hits me back with Error:- 21,126; which is basically
"License file does not support this version" and
"Application version > License version: 2009.0915 > 2009.0430"

I am using the ap121_calc.exe that came with the download package. Any thoughts on how I can fix this? I appreciate it.

Run setup.exe. from the "ans12win32 folder"
1. Install prerequisites
2. When setup is complete, DO NOT exit the setup menu and DO NOT install the License Manager YET
3. Open the "MAGNiTUDE folder" from the "ans12win32 folder" and copy "ap121_calc.exe" somewhere in a temp folder;
then run "ap121_calc.exe", Hit Y, this will generate a "license.txt" file. Rename "license.txt" into "license.dat"
4. put "license.dat" in C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing
We return to the menu
3. Open the file "ansyslmd.ini" from the "ans12_licgen folder" using notepad
4. Replace "host" with your computer's name
5. Save ansyslmd.ini
6. put "ansyslmd.ini" saved in C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing
7. Go into the following folder- C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v120\fluent\license\ntx86
8. click on Client_License_install-ntx86-2 .0.exe
9. Enter the license server name (Your computer's name)
10. Install License Manager
11. Start "Server ANSLIC_ADMIN" Utility"
13. Click on "Specify the License Server Machine" -> OK->"Add Server Machine Specification"
->Enter your Computer's name in "Hostname1"-> OK

Hi everybody,
I tried to install the Ansys 12.1 with "ap121_calc.exe" and Steve description. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful.
The installation and licence generation run well. But when I start ICEM CFD or Fluid the above message appears:
"Cannot connect to licence server system.
The licence server manager (lmgrd) has not been started yet, the wrong [email protected] or license file is being used, or the port or hostname in the licence file has been changed.
Feature: fluent
Server name: xxx.168.0.195
License path: C:\ANSYSI~1\v121\fluent\licens e\win64\...\license.dat
FLEXnet Licensing error:-15,10. System Error: 10061 "WinSock: Connection refused"
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing End User Guide, available at " "
ANSYS LICENSE MANAGER ERROR:Could not connect to any license server.
The server is down or is not responsive."
And I can not use any part of Ansys (it does not start or any function is unworked).
During the installation The licence config data is the following:
" There is already a license server machine specified. Therefore, no action is required.
Unless the information displayed above indicates that there were problems completing
any of the steps, the Licensing Client Installation Configuration has been completed.
Click <Exit> to exit the ANSYS, Inc. Licensing Client Installation Configuration window
and write this installation configuration log file data to the following path:
C:\ANSYS Inc\install_licconfig.log "
I tried the install 10th times. So I do not know what need to do more to install it successful.
Can anybody to help me?
Thank you in advance for it!

You do need a license.dat file with the corresponding packages in the
Ansys Inc\Shared Files\Licensing folder.
Friends whatever steps are provided are accurate the only problem is that what port number provided by ansys to us is wrong....try changin the port number from 1055 to 1056......and you wont have any problem
