Installation of Microsoft Office

Change:  Installation of Microsoft Office



In order to provide optimized service and support, the campus is standardizing on Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows and Office 2011 for Macintosh computers as part of the email upgrade project.  Tomorrow, Thursday 11/3/11, CLA Technical Services will begin remote installations of Office 2010 to Windows computers.


What you need to do:

If you have a Windows Desktop computer – Thursday, November 3rd, no later than 5 PM, please have your computer on, but logged off.  The remote installation will be pushed to your computer during the evening.

If you have a Windows Laptop – Office 2010 will install the next time the computer is started while physically connected to the campus network. Please note that you will not be able to use your computer during the installation which should take between 20 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

Note:  if a computer currently has Office 2010 the system will not attempt to reinstall the application.


For Macintosh Computers:

We do not have the capability to remotely install Microsoft Office 2011 on Macintosh computers. If you have a Macintosh laptop please contact CLA Technical Service to coordinate having Office 2011 installed on your computer.
