How to Use Software Center

Software Center is designed to make it quicker and easier for you to gain access to software you need. Once you have installed Software Center, and either run the "CCIT Configuration and Setup" or wait for the currently installed software to be detected, you can open Software Center and view software that is available for you to download. We recommend waiting until a professor asks you to install software before installing. It is highly recommended that you have an Ethernet connection when downloading large applications.

For help with installing Software Center, see article 855.


1. The first screen "Applications", will display a list of software that is available for you to install. You may click on any item to install that program.

4. On the "Installation Status" tab, you will see any software that you have selected to install and it’s current status. If an installation has failed, you will have the option to try and install the software again after you have clicked on the application. Note that some large applications may take a long time to complete.
