CAEN is announcing three important changes related to the CAEN Windows remote desktop service.
The CAEN Windows remote desktop service provided network access to the same Windows environment, including commercial engineering applications, that is available in CAEN’s student computing labs.
On January 3, 2014 CAEN will:
- Retire the CAEN Windows remote desktop service login option called CAEN Lab Software Environment 2013.
- Create a new CAEN Windows remote desktop service login option called CAEN Course Software 2013 and remove several of the commercial engineering applications in order to be compatible with network access restrictions in their licenses.
- Create a new CAEN Windows remote desktop service login option called CAEN Course Software (on-campus) 2013, that will provide access to the student computing lab software environment including the titles that are being removed from CAEN Course Software 2013 service, but with access that is restricted to on-campus locations.
The list of applications that will be removed from the CAEN Windows remote desktop CAEN Lab Software Environment 2013 service includes:
- icfb, virtuoso, Spectre, Encounter, ncverilog, and other Cadence tools
- Design Compiler, VCS, HSPICE, Sentaurus and other Synopsys tools
- Fluent, ANSYS, ICEM-CFD, and other Ansys tools
- HFSS, Maxwell, Designer, QE3D, and other Ansys EM tools (formerly Ansoft)
- Adams, Dytran, Marc, Nastran, Patran, SimDesigner and other MSC tools
Attempts at running any of these applications on CAEN Windows remote desktop CAEN Course Software 2013 service after January 3 will produce an informative error message.
All of the software applications licensed by CAEN will continue to be available in the CAEN student computing labs.
Information about general access to remote CAEN Lab Services can be found at http://caen.engin.umich.edu/connect/. If you have any questions regarding this change please contact the CAEN Hotline.
