Remotely access CAE applications online through XenApp. How to install and connect to XenApp. XenApp allows you to access some of CAE's software remotely. You do not need WiscVPN running to use this program.

NOTE: XenApp can be run without installing the Citrix Receiver. To do this, navigate to https://remote.engr.wisc.edu/ and log in, making sure to use the Light Version. Then skip to step 6.

If you are getting an error that reads "Incorrect Credentials. Try again", be sure that you are using your CAE credentials to log on. If you still get the error, and you have not changed your password recently, it may be due to an invalid character or string of characters in your password. If you changed your password in the last few minutes, give it a couple more minutes and try again as the system takes a few minutes to refresh.
