Software Center is an application that allows us to distribute programs to users on university-owned Windows computers.
Start by going to the Start Menu. Look for Microsoft System Center and select Software Center.
Select the software you want to install then click the Install button or Install Selected button, depending on which view you have selected. If the install fails, restart your computer and open the Software Center again. Select the application again and click the Retry button.
Once IT has added you to the appropriate groups, updates to your available software occur at 8:30, 12:30, and 4:30. However, your computer downloads/checks for updates less frequently. If you wish to speed up your computer’s discovery of new software, open the Control Panel and select click Configuration Manager.
A Configuration Manager Properties dialog box will appear. Go to the Actions tab and select Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle. Then at the bottom right of the dialog box click Run Now. Repeat this step for Software Inventory Cycle and Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle. The Software Center should update shortly after.
