The Jade University provides software for its relatives in various ways.


If you want to access a software product for your lecture or the laboratory that is not currently available through the HRZ, the University members (with the exception of students) can fill in the Service request for software delivery and send it to the computing center.

Depending on the checking of all necessary requirements for the central provision of the requested software product, the software is made available in the HRZ software menu.

Software provision

The computing center provides for every virtual desktops software about the software provision via VMware AppVolumes and ThinApps..

In contrast to software distribution, where software must first be installed before use, software packages are shown here in the operating system and can therefore be used immediately without installation.

The provided software can be found in the virtual desktops in the start menu of the operating system.

software licences

The computer center procures central software licenses that are available via Campus contracts and/or via centrallicense server.

Software distribution

The computing center provides software via the software distribution via ZENworks for every system, which is connected to the PC-Verbundsystem.

Similar to your local software installation, the software must also be installed on devices in the PC network system first. However, this happens largely automatically with the help of our HRZ software menu. To do this, click on the desired product in the HRZ software menu and confirm the query that is asked before each installation to avoid unwanted software installations.

The HRZ software menu for devices in the PC network system opens automatically after logging into the system. If you have closed this window once, you will find the software menu under

  • Start / All programs / HRZ-softwaremenu.
