Sotfware to install

  • Installed from the initial window
    • Office
  • Installed from CMF
    • 7-zip
    • Cadence 17.4 [note, good to know: the setup of this program remains stuck at 99.9% of the installation process for hours, but then it works]
    • Git for Windows
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • Installed manually
    • Mathworks MCR 9.4
    • Notepad++
    • Java [Download Java for Windows]
  • Projects to clone (if difficult to do, an alternative is to move the default PSPICE library on a CERNBox subfolder as well)
  • Files moved manually
    • In "C:\LEDET_simulationFiles", some subfolders with LEDET executables, which will be populated with LEDET temporary files [the reason why they're not in CERNBox subfolders is that different VM's would use/overwrite the same LEDET temporary files]
  • Install Python 3.8.0
    • Either select to add Python to PATH during installation, or
    • Open cmd, and run this command: setx PATH "%PATH%; C:\Users\emm\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\Scripts"
