    Computer Modelling Group Ltd. Introduction to Launcher Tutorial   1 | Page  CMG’s   Launcher   Application   CMG’s   Launcher   application   was   designed   to   aid   users   in   organizing   files   and   programs.   Launcher   contains   numerous   advantages   to   using   Windows   Explorer   such   as   allowing   the   user   to   create   projects   to   organize   files,   allows   convenient   access   to   help   manuals   and   tutorials,   and   organizes   all   installed   versions   of    CMG   software.   Launcher   Sections   1.   When   installed,   the   Launcher   icon   will   appear   on   the   desktop.   Double ‐ click   on   the   icon   to   open   Launcher   (if    not   already   open).   2.   Once   open   it   can   be   noted   that   Launcher   is   divided   into   4   main   sections:   1 234   2 | Page  Section   1:   The   purpose   of    Section   1   is   to   help   in   the   organization   of    folders.   Specific   folders   can   be   navigated   to   by   using   the   buttons   on   the   top   menu   bar.   Section   2:   After   the   appropriate   folder   has   been   navigated   to   in   Section   1   the   contents   of    the   folder   will   appear   in   Section   2.   The   files   being   shown   in   this   window   can   be   filtered   based   on   their   associated   use   (e.g.   Simulator   files,   Results   files,   etc.)   by   using   the   filter   option   on   the   top   toolbar   (highlighted   below).   Files   in   this   section   can   be   copy/pasted   by   right   clicking   on   them   and   selecting   copy/paste   (please   note   that   the   CTRL+C   and   CTRL+V   shortcuts   are   not   currently   supported   in   Launcher   but   may   be   in   a   future   version).   Files   in   this   section   can   be   opened   in   a   CMG   product   or   run   in   a   simulator   by   ‘dragging   and   dropping’   it   onto   the   associated   executable’s   icon   in   Section   3.   Section   3:   This   section   contains   CMG   products   organized   by   version   in   a   tabular   fashion.   Certain   products   may   be   opened   in   their   associated   Guided   User   Interfaces’   (GUI’s)   by   double   clicking   on   them.   These   include   Builder,   Results   3D,   Results   Graph,   WinProp,   and   CMOST.   The   simulators   (IMEX,   STARS,   and   GEM)   do   not   have   associated   GUIs   and   are   instead    just   executables.     3 | Page  Non ‐ CMG   executables   may   be   added   to   this   window   as   shortcuts.   Common   programs   may   include   Microsoft   Office   products   (Excel,   PowerPoint,   etc.)   text   editing   software   (Textpad,   Notepad,   etc.)   or   other   programs.   Section   4:   This   section   displays   information   on   queued,   completed,   or   running   datasets.   To   launch   a   dataset   the   user   drags   and   drops   the   .dat   file   (main   dataset)   onto   the   associated   simulator.   After   selecting   the   appropriate   run   options   from   the   window   which   appears   (covered   in   Exercise   1 )   the   run   will   be   launched   and   appear   in   this   section.   Information   displayed   relating   to   the   runs   that   will   be   of    most   interest   include   the   Name   of    the   file,   the   Status ,   Scheduler ,   Submitted ,   Started ,   and   Finished   times.   Shown   in   the   above   image   is   what   a   user   may   expect   to   see   when   a   simulation   in   Completed,   Running,   and   still   waiting   to   start.   If    a   run   has   failed   to   launch   to   then   it   will   turn   Red   (as   opposed   to   the   Green   shown   above)   indicating   that   it   has   encountered   an   issue.   It   should   be   noted,   though,   that   this   may   not   be   related   to   the   run   terminating   abnormally   or   due   to   an   error   while   running   (as   often   these   runs   will   display   Complete   and   the   user   will   need   to   look   at   the   .Log   file   to   determine   if    the   run   was   successful).   Scheduler   refers   to   the   computer   or   resource   that   the   simulation   was   ran   on.   If    Local   is   listed   then   the   run   was   done   on   the   current   machine.   Launcher   allows   users   to   send   a   simulation   to   a   separate   computer   or   cluster   through   different   schedulers   (common   ones   include   Microsoft   Compute   Cluster   Server,   LSF,   and   SunGrid   Engine).   ‘Submitted   At’   indicates   when   the   simulation   was   launched.   This   may   not   necessarily   coincide   with   the   ‘Started   At’   time   as   when   a   simulation   starts   will   be   based   on   availability   of    both   computer   and   license   resources.   Simulations   may   also   be   queued   by   the   user   to   start   running   based   on   numerous   controls   (a   specific   time,   after   another   specified   simulation   in   complete,   etc.).   ‘Finished   At’   indicates   the   date   and   time   that   the   simulation   was   completed.   The   difference   between   the   ‘Started   At’   and   ‘Finished   At’   times   give   the   elapsed   run ‐ time.   This   can   also   be   found   at   the   bottom   of    the   .Log   file.
