couldn't load library "c:/program files/ansys inc/v110..../intel/ansinfo.dll": invalid argument... while executing

Problem Description: When trying to open ANSYS by double clicking a .db or .dbb file you receive the following error:

couldn't load library "c:/program files/ansys inc/v110..../intel/ansinfo.dll": invalid argument
while executing
"load {c:/program files/ansys inc....ansinfo.dll} ansinfo"
invoked from within
"package require ansinfo"
(file "c:program file....launcherlaunchermain.itcl" line 60)

This can occur if using Roaming Profiles. This setting was probably configured on a 32-bit machine and the Roaming Profile carried it over to the 64-bit machine.


1.Open Windows Explorer
2.Tools Menu
3.Folder Options
4.Choose File Types (Tab)
5.Select the "DB" Extension
6.Click "Advanced"
7.Select "Open"
8.Click "Edit"
9.The Path pointed to:

"C:Program FilesANSYS Incv110Common FilestclbinIntelwish.exe" "C:Program FilesANSYS Incv120Common FilesLauncherLauncherMain.itcl" -runae -FILE "%1"

Should be:

"C:Program FilesANSYS Incv110Common FilestclbinWinx64wish.exe" "C:Program FilesANSYS Incv120Common FilesLauncherLauncherMain.itcl" -runae -FILE "%1"

NOTE: The change from "Intel" to "Winx64" in the path is the resolution.

Do the same thing for the .dbb extension
