When installing ANSYS products on a Windows 64bit machine, the installation seems to hang and will not proceed. What causes this?
What are the steps to allow the installation to finish?
When ANSYS products are installing, there is a point in the installation where a message is sent
to the system to inform all processes of new environment variables that were set. Some processes have a problem handling this call and do not respond.
The following processes are ones that are known to cause the installation to hang by not responding;
To allow the ANSYS Products installation to complete, use the windows task Manager to "End Process" on any of the processes seen.
After doing so, the installation should proceed and the user should see the next screen of the install process.
After installation is finished, reboot to restart ended processes.
