WSU offers many programs to students, faculty, and staff at no additional charge that are not pre-loaded on the computer when it is received. To get these programs they must be installed from the network via Control Panel Installations. The server these apps are stored on is called the KeyServer.

Notes:
  • It is best if you are connected to the WSU campus with an Ethernet cable when installing programs
  • NOTE: Some installs may take up to 30 minutes. Please do not quit the install process during this time.
  • When software is installed off the KeyServer, you will need to be on the campus network or connected via VPN in order to use the software.

Instructions Windows 7, 8, & 10

  • Click on the Start Button Start Button.JPG
  • Then Type in “Control Panel” and select “Programs and Features”
