Is Creo 2.0 supported in ANSYS 14.0?

At this time we do not have an officially supported Creo Parametric 2.0
Plug-In for ANSYS 14.0.

However, the existing ANSYS 14.0 plug-in can be manually configured to run with
Creo 2.0 by performing the steps detailed in section 7.1.4 of the ANSYS 14.0 Help. Paste this string into the Path field of the Help viewer:

// Installation and Licensing Documentation // Windows Installation Guide
// 7. Configuring CAD Products :: 0 // 7.1. Using the CAD Configuration
Manager :: 0

The configuration steps are also repeated below:

Create WBPlugInPE.dat file in
(See below for contents.)

Create a file in either <Path to Creo 2.0>Common
Files<ShipCode>text or %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%. (See below for contents.)

Running the plug-in configured this way has the following known issues:

Some files without a version extension at the end will not import unless
the CAD system is active. (Specific to Creo 2.0)

Updating the with invalid parameters does not automatically roll-back the
model to last valid state. (Creo 1.0 and 2.0)

Reader attach/update may fail when running on Windows 7. (Creo 1.0 and 2.0)
