ANSYS Error when updating Mechanical APDL

In Workbench I ran a static structural, and a linear buckling analysis on a cylinder (meshed 2-D surface), and the results look fine.
Then I linked the solution of the linear buckling analysis to a mechanical APDL component, and added a custom input file.

The problem is I get an error (The solver failed with a non-zero exit code of: 15) regardless of what the input file contains. Even if it is completely empty.

Any help would be great!

Probably you have error in your model. In my case it was missing ALLS at the end of PREP7 command in APDL.
Try run in in pure Ansys and see if there is any error.

I've had the same problem. I only changed property "GPUAccelerator" to "NONE". Earlier was "NVIDIA".
