Technology services has a new tool to deploy software to district owned machines that does not require the end user to have administrative rights. The tool is called Microsoft Software Center. For staff and students to use this tool please use the directions below.

Go to Start, Type Software Center.













If there is nothing listed here hit F5 or FN+F5 (depending on laptop model). Check program name and click “Install Selected” in the lower right hand corner.




The program will now disappear from the “Available Software” tab and jump to the “Installation Status” tab. You should see a status of “Downloading (%)” and “Installing“. Do not shutdown or logoff during this process. Once the status turns to “Installed” you are good to go.

The program will then be located in the “Installed Software” tab.
