Full instructions for both versions of the software are included in the Installation Guidelines for IT Administrators.
For GRANTA EduPack (Flex-enabled) your students will need to be provided with:
- The installation package, which is downloaded from the Ansys Customer Portal (students cannot download the software directly).
- The name and port number of your institution’s Ansys FlexNet license server.
You can distribute the installation package using a private network, a VLE, or physical media (e.g. USB stick). Students will need to copy the folder to a local drive before installing.
If your institution currently uses Ansys products, they will already have an Ansys FlexNet license server. However, it must have an up-to-date version of Ansys License Manager to support GRANTA EduPack. If your institution does not have an Ansys FlexNet server yet, we recommend starting with the Installation and Licensing Help pages and Licensing Guide.
For GRANTA EduPack Classic, you will need to download the installer from the Granta Design website, and use the installer to create the installation package for your students.
