Installing Software From The Network
WSU offers many programs to students at no additional charge that are not installed on the computer when it is received. To install these programs you should be on campus and have your network cord connected to ensure that the download goes smoothly. The applications are installed from the network (KeyServer) via "Control panel" on the PC and "Applications/Software Additions" on the Mac.
It is preferred that you be ON CAMPUS when you do this. If you absolutely need one of the software programs and you are OFF CAMPUS you will need to login via VPN to connect to the WSU network. We cannot guarantee that the program will load successfully to your laptop from off campus. Some programs can take 20 minutes to install.
Running Programs off the KeyServer
When programs are installed from the KeyServer, you must be connected to the WSU network for these programs to run. If you are off-campus, you will need to VPN for these programs to run.
