Current Windows Software

User-Installed Software

CSE Labs uses System Center Configuration Manager (also known as ConfigMgr) software to deploy software to CSE Labs Windows computers. As part of this software, students will have access to the Software Center. The Software Center is a portal to Configuration Manager that will allow you to see what software is available for installation.

To access Software Center, go to Start → All Programs → Microsoft System Center 2012--Configuration Manager → Software Center.

Any software that is listed in Software Center with an "Available" status means that anyone logged into the computer can install the software. Once the software is installed, it should be available to anyone who uses the computer. You may also see software with a "Required" status. This means the software will be automatically installed on the computer at some point, usually at night during one of our maintenance windows. Depending on how the Required application is deployed, you may be able to install that software ahead of schedule.

The Software Center is the best place to see what software is available and what software has already been installed. If you do not see the application you are looking for in Software Center, notify csehelp@umn.edu and we will see if we can add that application to the Software Center.
