Atlas.ti

Update 2022-09-29: The offline validation procedure for Atlas.ti no longer works. You can still use Atlas.ti, by opening up the IP ports mentioned below under Validating your Atlas.ti license (for more information about opening up ports, see Opening up ports (mydre.org)).
Atlas.ti 9 requires users to register their copy of the program. This has to do with keeping track of the number of concurrent users of the program. Registration within virtual machines (without internet connection) requires following the steps described below.

Installing Atlas.ti

Before installing Atlas.ti, you need .NET Framework 4.8 or higher. This version can be installed from the Application Installer available on virtual machines created from a RUMC template. This installation takes several minutes and requires a restart of your machine - the machine will stay in status 'running', but you need to wait a few minutes before connecting to it again.  You can then install Atlas.ti, also from the Application Installer.

Alternatively, a .exe file is available after activation of the license invitation in your Atlas.ti account (see below under Validating your Atlas.ti license). Simply download the executable for Windows on your own computer and upload it to your workspace, then run it on your virtual machine.

Validating your Atlas.ti license

To register your copy of Atlas.ti, follow these steps (figures can be found below):

Step1: Within Radboudumc VMWare / Werkplek:
  1. Open File Explorer (Verkenner) and go to the folder W:\Software\Atlas.ti\
  2. Open the most recent license-yyyy-yyyy.txt file and copy the invite URL.
  3. Paste the URL in a browser (do not use Internet Explorer), this will bring you to the Atlas.ti login page.
  4. If you do not have an Atlas.ti account yet, create one by clicking on Create an account! The Radboudumc license will now automatically be linked to your account (if not, use the invitation key in the abovementioned .txt file).

In your workspace, go to the External Access tab and create and enable the following port rules (for more on external access, see Opening up ports):
