My teacher uses this version. I tried downloading Ansys 2020, but it's too different and he doesnt't know how to use the newest version either.

    Please check here.

    So please use 2020R1. Also, 2019R2 and R3 are available to download if you want to use it.

    R17.1 will not be available on student community.

    i think it is not updated for latest version.

    for r17, you will need to contact your university or professor.

We periodically see requests for the download of prior releases of the ANSYS Student products. This post outlines our prior release policy for our free Student Products, and provides a solution if you find yourself needing to refresh the license for an earlier release...

Our policy for the free student products is that we support the current release and as far back as two releases (inclusive of point releases). So for example if the current release is 2019 R2, then we are also continuing to provide the downloads of 2019 R1 and Release 19.2. Prior release download packages beyond three recent releases will not be retained/provided on the download page.

For each release we build in the license key which has a duration of 12 months – At this time it is not practical for us to go back and rebuild the downloads that fall outside of the two prior release window. However, please note that if you have an installation of a prior release that has an expired license then you can follow these instructions to upgrade that expired license key.

We understand that there are cases where a university professor is continuing to teach using a prior release, and that University IT staff time software version upgrades to fall during semester breaks to minimize disruption. In such cases, we encourage students that need installations of a prior release ANSYS Student product to work with their professor to gain access to the relevant ANSYS Academic Teaching licenses, or ideally get their professor to upgrade to a more recent release – Using the most recent release will ensure that you have the absolute best simulation experience, latest, fastest solvers, access to the very latest features. Note also, that although the difference between two point releases such as 19.1 and 19.2 introduces many cool feature enhancements, the products’ general UI and workflow changes should not be disruptive to course content and shouldn’t prohibit a Professor from upgrading - Updating a lab’s software installation is relatively straightforward, and could be implemented overnight or at a weekend.
