Hints and Tips for User Installed Software

This page contains hints and tips intended to help users install and run software themselves. If you do not find the information you need, you are of course very welcome to contact us at

There are many reasons why users or groups of users may choose to install software on their own, for instance

  • License for the software does not permit a site-wide installation.
  • Software is expensive to buy for site-installation, and is not deemed of interest to enough users to justify the expense.
  • User needs a different version/modified version of software.
  • Software is only of interest to one or a few users.

List of software

If you are interested in software which is not installed at HPC2N, and which is not listed here, please contact us at We may either make a site-install of the software, or help you install it in your own directory.
