How to use 4 cores with ANSYS WB 19.2

How to use 4 cores with ANSYS WB 19.2

How to use 4 cores with ANSYS WB 19.2

I was under the impression that the abbility to use more than 2 cores was restricted on some licenses.
I got the below message today I wondered if infact we do have the required licence so tried to enable 4 cores. Now I just get a generic error. Is this the expected result if it's a licensing issue or do I just need to configure something correctly?

I have tried creating another project but still get the same result.

Initial msg:

Message after trying to re-run the solution with 4 cores.

RE: How to use 4 cores with ANSYS WB 19.2


AFAIK it depends if you're under the old (NLS,Structural etc.) or the new (Premium etc.) licensing scheme. Looks like you are under the old licensing scheme. What did the solver output tell you? Messages in WB are generally of less value, use the .err files in the solver directory to find out what really happens.


RE: How to use 4 cores with ANSYS WB 19.2

I guess that first msg box was a bit misleading, according to the solver outut:

" *** FATAL *** CP = 0.047 TIME= 07:59:51
Parallel capability is restricted to 2 for this product. "

White Paper – Your Construction ERP RFP Checklist
Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
