Software on the CMS Virtual Desktop

We try to make as much Windows-based software used in teaching in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences available on the CMS virtual desktop as possible, however we are not able to put certain software on the CMS virtual desktop for various reasons. These include:

  • Software with licensing restrictions (e.g. the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite)
  • Software that will not run on the virtual desktop system due to hardware limitations (e.g. Android Studio, Autodesk 3D Studio Max, Unity)
  • Specialist Forensic and Hardware Comms software installed in the Forensics lab KW103B and/or Hardware Comms lab KW116 which must be run in an isolated environment for security reasosn
  • Mac OS X or software that runs on Mac OS X only
