[McIDAS #CFH-129934]: Download problem



Hi James,

re:

> access /downloads/mcidas/index.jsp on this server."

It is most likely that you registered using a non-'.edu' email address
(e.g., address@hidden), and you did not specify an Affiliation
Type that was one of the following:

Degree Granting College or University
Community College
K-12 Institution

The reason that this is important is our license with UW/SSEC to distribute
McIDAS-X permits us to make the software available to U.S. educational
institutions with no exceptions and international educational institutions
with a few restrictions.  We are not allowed to distribute McIDAS-X
to commercial entities, government agencies or private individuals

So, if you are wanting to download Unidata McIDAS-X-/-XCD on behalf
of SUNY Albany/ASRC, we can arrange access for you. Please let us
know if this is, in fact, the case.



Cheers,

Tom
