Ansys License Installation & Licensing Center

The Ansys network license manager/server is a stand alone application that hosts your license file and checks in and out licenses to one or many users over a network. It is a required application to run your Ansys software.  It can be installed on the client machine for single user deployments but is most often installed on a dedicated machine in multi-user environment. A client must be able to connect to and stay connected to the license manager in order to open and use the software.‍ The License Manager is managed via the License Management Center webpage where you can install your license‍, stop/start the server‍, view usage statistics‍, collect server diagnostic logs‍ and more.
