Altair HyperWorks Desktop 2022.2 Release Notes

Transition to the New HyperWorks
As part of the transition to the new HyperWorks, the shortcuts for legacy desktop clients have been removed from the Windows Start menu in 2022.2. In order to restore them, right-click on a shortcut in the Start Menu and open the file location. Then, open Properties from the context menu and clear the Hidden attribute.

Additionally, as new workflows are developed, the equivalent panels are gradually being phased out of the new HyperWorks experience, with complete removal scheduled for the 2023 release. The list of deprecated panels and their new equivalent workflows can be found using the Tool Finder page.
