After installing Release 2018 in Win 7 and starting Sim Mech the following error message appears.




Will manually setting the environment variable solve this?

Hi Ron @RoSChneider


Yes, you should be able to fix the problem by creating the variable manually. The value would be set to the folder where the software is installed, such as C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation 2018\
