Installing Software on SU-Owned Computers (Windows)

Using the Software Center

The Software Center is the source for downloading and installing software on SU's Windows PCs. It is available on all Windows PCs on campus with an SU inventory tag that are on the SU domain. These directions are for computers or laptops that are connected to the SU wired or wireless network. Software cannot be installed using this method from offsite.

To open the Software Center:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Click Software Center.

To install a program from the Software Center:

Software Center

  1. Select the software you wish to install from the Applications list.
  2. Click the Install button.
  3. Click the Installation Status tab to see the installation progress.

Faculty and staff can use the Software Center to install (and uninstall) licensed software to their SU-owned Windows-based computer. From the Software Center, you can select from Applications to install software to your computer, check the Installation Status of current installs, and check Installed Software to view and uninstall currently installed software.

Other software installations

If the software you want to install is not found in the Software Center, you may be able to install it yourself from download or other media. You will want to make sure that the software that you are intending to install is licensed to be installed on a university computer before starting the installation. If you aren't sure, you can call the IT Help Desk at 410-677-5454 for assistance, or contact IT Procurement for information about purchasing licensed software.

In some cases, an install may require an administrator username and password. If this happens, call the IT Help Desk at 7-5454 for assistance.
