Installing Applications on University Desktops
Using the Configuration Manager Software Center
Applications managed by LTS have been packaged into easy to use installers for Faculty and Staff utilizing Microsoft’s Configuration Manager. Software that distributed to “all campus computers” or software that has “restricted licensing” will both be shown in the “Software Center” tool. This is new behavior after a recent update to the Software Center (previously they were separated based on these two licensing scenarios).
For software that is licensed per computer
Contact the Help Desk at 715-836-5711 or email@example.com and request a license.
After the license has been verified, LTS will deploy the software to the computer.
How It Works
Search for Software Center by clicking the start button in the lower left and typing “Software Center” (without quotes). Or you can find it in Start Menu >> Utilities >> Software Center
Start Menu (Win10) Software Center
Start Menu (Win7) Software Center
Software Center should display similar to the following image. On the left pane you will see a four menu options. In the upper right you can search for a specific application.
Applications – View “All Software” (available & required) or only those that are “Required”
Updates – System Updates that are installing for scheduled for future installation
Operating Systems – Available Operating Systems installations
Installation Status –Scheduled, Installed or Failed installations
Device Compliance – Date and status of last compliance check
Options – Unused, all options are managed by LTS across campus

If you click on an Application you will be shown information about the application such as status, version, date published, estimated time to install. If the program is already installed you have the option to uninstall the program. Click “Install” to start the application installation.
Starting an application installation
Installation will begin after requirements have been checked (proper operating system, free space, etc).
Application during installation
Once an application is finished installing, you will see the following message. You can double-check that the software installed by opening the Software Center and verifying that the status is “Installed”.
Software Center Information
Below are some common issues that can arise when installing software. Please try re-running the installation for any piece of software that fails prior to escalating the issue.
The Configuration Manager client is not installed. Navigate to Start Menu, search for “Control Panel” >> System and Security >> Configuration Manager (at the bottom of this section). If it is not there or does not have info similar to this on the “General” tab then SCCM is not installed
Configuration Manager Control Panel
Solution: Contact the LTS Help Desk in order to get the new SCCM client installed.
Software can be installed onto office Mac computers from the Self Service application. In addition, the Self Service catalog is also home to miscellaneous items such as the Fix My Keychain application, and where Network Printers can be installed from.
NOTE: If the software you are looking for is not listed, please contact the LTS Help Desk at 715-836-5711 and Helpdesk@uwec.edu.
