Why is [module] no longer available?

MSI tracks the utilization of the software modules installed on our systems. When a module has not been utilized in more than a year, it becomes a candidate for decommissioning and removal from our systems. Once a candidate for decommissioning has been identified, access to that software will be turned off, but the software will remain on our systems. If no reason to re-enable the candidate emerges within six months, the software will then be removed from MSI systems. Below you will find a current list of software slated for decommissioning. The listed software is currently disabled for users, and will be removed from our systems on the indicated removal date.

Please contact help@msi.umn.edu if you believe a piece of software has been included on this list in error, or if you need a listed piece of software for your research.
