How do I install software on an MSU Denver Windows computer using Software Center?


Software Center is a program installed on all MSU Denver Windows devices that allow users to install, update, and uninstall pre-approved applications without requiring ITS support or intervention. This article will walk you through installing software through this tool.

Before you begin...

Some software may require access to the MSU Denver GlobalProtect service for licensing. For more information on GlobalProtect, please see What is GlobalProtect? For help connecting the GlobalProtect client, please see How do I connect to GlobalProtect via the client?


  1. Search for "Software Center" using the Windows Search Bar.

  2. Open the Software Center app.

    Note: If you do not have the app installed on your MSU Denver computer, please contact the ITS Service Desk.

    Note: Your list of available software may not match the software listed above.

  3. In Software Center, use the search bar to look for your desired app (you can also scroll through the list or use the filtering options to locate it). Once you've found it, click the app for more information.

  4. Once you've found the app you're looking for, click the Install button.


You have successfully started the installation of your desired software. Note that different apps will have different installation times, and some may require you restart your computer. You can continue to use your computer while the installation runs.
