WinHostId is an executable program provided by ANSYS, Inc. This program will provide all the licensing information necessary for your ANSYS support provider to generate a lincense file for you. The process can be further simplified by clicking the “Create File” button, and sending the resulting text file to your support provider via email. This program only works on Windows machines running any of the Windows operating systems.
