can't run simulate on a part previously analyzed in Ansys

I’m dead in the water until this is fixed.

 

I got a part from our anayst that was previously analyzed in ANSYS workbench.   I’ve gotten these many times before, and used Simulate to analyze my modifications.   The file I get is a Creo part; nothing special about it.

 

When I bring the part into Simulate, I can add material, loads, and constraints as I normally do.

 

But the mesh icons are different from typical, there is no AutoGem, and when I go to do the analysis I set up, I get options that are different (ANSYS, NASTRAN, or neutral file).  The analysis doesn’t run, and the mesh created doesn’t save with the model.

 

I can't find anything in the model setup that says: "only allow this part to be run in ansys or nastran".  Anybody know what the heck is going on?

Well, that's an easy fix!  Thank you very much.  I'd never seen this before.
