Installing PreVABSGUI for ANSYS

  1. saeid Khadem Moshir

    Hello

    I copied the VABSGUI_V_alpha_1.0 file in my ANSYS 19 working directory. I changed the menulist###.ans  to  menulist.ans with the correct path which is my ansys working directory. The PreVABS was appeared in my ANSYS menu list. 

    Then, I installed the VABS3.8ReleasePC08-29-2018 in the ansys working directory and the VABSIII.exe is generated and then I copied the license file in the ANSYS working directory. 

    I modeled something according to the guide files, there exists just the VABSInputFile, and other files such as .K are not created

    Can anyone guide me for this problem?

    Thanks

      You need to set the path to VABSIII.exe so that when you execute the GUI, ANSYS can find VABSIII.exe.
