VLab - Where should I save my work?

This FAQ was last modified on: Wednesday, November 29, 2017 03:12pm

You should always save your work in at least two locations.  By default nearly all VLab pools will redirect My Documents/Documents, Desktop, and Downloads to space on Prism. This is also mapped in virtual machines as P:\ drive.You can access Prism from your Windows PC or Mac.  Files related to VLab will be in a vlab folder/directory for your Prism network file space.  Performance is generally best when saving to P drive which is Prism.

If you have finished all your work, please logout via the Start button for the virtual machine. Individual software packages hosted as Apps should be exited by closing their window.

If you simply exit the Receiver, you are likely only disconnecting your session, and may prevent other users from being able to access the resource.

Below is a list of the devices and OS platforms that have a Citrix Receiver version available. Note just because a pool or application is available on any device, there are limitations to what's reasonably possible. For example using a mobile device to check the status of a running simulation may be fine, but trying to use your phone or tablet to do work in CAD-CAM programs is likely to be a frustrating experience.
