Software Center

Windows Software Center

The Windows Software Center gives the employee the ability to install verified Gustavus-owned software on their machine without needing an appointment with GTS. The instructions below will walk through the process of using the Software Center.

  1. First make sure there are no Windows updates or reboots pending on your machine. If your machine requires a reboot or if you are not sure, reboot your computer before proceeding. Note: The software deployment will fail if your machine requires a reboot.
  2. Close all open applications to avoid any conflicts with the software deployment.
  3. Click Start->All Programs->Microsoft System Center->Software Center
  4. In the Software Center, select Available Software. This will list all the available software that can be deployed to your machine. Sccmsoftcenter2.PNG
  5. Select the checkbox next to the software you wish to deploy and click Install.
    1. If the software is not available on the initial list, click the "Find Additional applications from the Application Catalog" link and login with gustie\yourusername and password.Softwarecentercatalog.PNG
  6. Now wait for the software install to complete. This process may take a while as it downloads and installs the software. You may check the Installation Status or Installed Software tabs in the Software Center about the status of the installation.
