Install Software Using Software Center

This KB Article provides an overview for installing software on FVTC computers using Software Center.

Many software applications not pre-installed on FVTC computers can be installed through Software Center.

Scheduled releases of computer security and software updates can also be manually installed through Software Center during a more convenient time prior to their automatic upgrade dates.



Search for and select the Software Center Desktop app from the Windows start menu. 

Search for "software" in the Windows start menu.


In Software Center, along the left:

  • Select Applications to view and install additional software.

  • Select Updates to install scheduled updates and patches prior to the automated update process.

    Click Applications or Updates along the left of Software Center.


To install an Application,

  1. Browse/search for an application.

  2. Click to select the application. A red Install button will display if the selected software is available.

    It is strongly recommended that you close all open programs prior to installing a new application or upgrade. Some open programs can interfere with the installation process.

  3. Click Install and wait for the installation to complete.

  4. Once the installation has completed, locate and run the new application in the Windows start menu.
