General Board / Re: EALite & EA full on a PC?!
« on: March 08, 2012, 05:04:34 am »
Update - it turns out that EALite does NOT install over an existing installation - it just wipes/replaces the existing desktop icon and replaces it with one that looks identical but points to the new EA lite install. (Same icon and icon name.)    I simply had to rename it to "EA Lite" and then recreate the original icon pointing to the original EA install.  

It would be nice if the EAlite installer created a slightly different desktop icon and used a different icon name so that it didn't interfere with an existing (registered) EA install.  

Thanks for the reply!


General Board / EALite & EA full on a PC?!
« on: March 08, 2012, 02:30:30 am »
Is there any way to get both EALite and the fully registered version of EA to play nice on the same PC?   We have a license server set up with a set of EA Ultimate floating licenses, but have some users that only need to review/examine a model on some days and on other days, they actively need to work inside a model.  

It would be REALLY nice if users could load up the EAlite (read only) version when they just need to examine or reference a model and not hog a floating license from a user that really needs it.  

Right now, if EAlite is loaded onto a user's machine, it overwrites the registered version if it is there.  

Is there any way to have both the registered version and the EAlite version loaded up onto the same PC and have the user choose which to fire up?   Help!

The EA 9 Beta release notes mention "Support for the SysML 1.2 specification".   Can anyone elaborate or provide any insight as to what this support might actually entail?  (I.E. What has changed since EA version 8's former support of the SysML 1.1 standard?)

One of the weak areas in EA's list of extensive features (when compared to some other modeling tools such as MagicDraw) is EA's support in the area of SysML - specifically parametrics.   Our System's Engineers really want advanced SysML support to include the ability to build high-fidelity SysML parametric models which they can then execute within the tool to analyze/calculate various measures of effectiveness (MOE's) as well as to verify requirements and design constraints.    

While it looks like the EA 9 beta is updating its support of the SysML standard (going from version 1.1 to 1.2 support), which is a step in the right direction to appease our SE's, there's still a lot they want that's not quite there yet.  The ability to hook into and work with MATLAB/Simulink models for instance.

Well, I came across this little announcement yesterday:

It's just been announced/released as beta, but it looks like it will give EA the shot in the arm it needs to keep our Systems Engineers happy.   Hopefully Sparx will partner/work with these guys to ensure that EA work seamlessly with this add-on along with the MDG SysML add-on.   :)
