Effective November 1, 2010, Information Technology Acquisitions and University Computer Support (4Help) will be offering on-site software installation support on the Torgersen Bridge. The purpose of this initiative is to provide on-site technical software support and offer bi-monthly educational seminars to eligible faculty, staff, and students. This center will provide installation assistance to individuals who obtain their software from the Software Distribution office as well as assistance installing Windows on Apple computers. In addition to assistance with software installation, the initiative will provide regularly scheduled tutorial help sessions based on common problems such as backup of data, reformat of a system, virus removal, VT-Wireless, etc.
The Software Assistance and Education Center is closed for the summer.
Software Distribution will no longer distribute Microsoft Office for both Windows and Macintosh or Windows OS (Windows 7) upgrades to faculty, staff, and graduate students for personal use, once the current supply is exhausted. The change is the result of licensing changes by Microsoft. Participants in the Campus Agreement Program will not be affected.
The University Bookstore will be carrying these software packages and will be happy to assist you with your purchasing needs. If you have questions, please contact Software Distribution at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attention Student and Employee Customers - If you plan to install Windows 7, please read the Windows 7 Installation Instructions first.
