Why can't I find software applications listed in the Start menu on CAEN Windows computers?

The process for starting most Windows software applications on the CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) uses a software-on-demand service called AppsAnywhere. Applications are no longer installed locally on computers, or available in the Windows Start menu by default. Instead, each time you log into a CAEN Windows computer, you must select software to launch via the AppsAnywhere web page.
