Self-Install software - Software Center
Posted by Aaron Klein on 20 June 2013 08:33 AM

Select applications can now be installed by the user with out the intervention of the IT center.  These applications can be accessed by going to the Application Catalog.  The list of applications that can be installed by the user is somewhat limited at the moment but there may be additional applications added in the future.  The application catalog is only available for users who are on campus.  Off campus users will not be able to access the appilcation catalog.

Currently the list of items that can be installed by the user include the following:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Itunes
  • Quicktime
  • Adobe Reader

Users can access the application catalog one of two methods.  The most direct method would be to go directly to it from this web link. 

Application Catalog

The second method would be to search for "Software Center" in the start menu.

Search for software center

This will open an application called the Software Center.  This is where you may see software deployments that have been assigned to your office computer but have not yet been installed.  In the upper right corner there is a link that says "Find additional applications from the Application Catalog". Click this link to open the Application Catalog.

One the Application Catalog is open select the specific application you wish to install and click the install button.  You should see the progress of the install and over the course of a few minutes the application you selected will install.
