The "Application Catalog" is a self service portal for installing ITS approved software applications for Windows computers here at RIT. This web portal will allow you to select and install, at your discretion, various software applications approved for use on ITS managed computer systems.
To access the "Application Catalog", please follow the steps below:
Located on the Windows start menu, you will see a folder named, "Microsoft System Center 2012". Within that folder, there are two programs labeled “Software Center” and “Application Catalog". Opening "Application Catalog" will give you the ability to easily install any ITS approved software application at your convenience. Over time, we hope users will utilize the “Application Catalog” to provide themselves with the software applications they need to maximize their productivity here at RIT.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ITS Service Desk at (585) 475-4357.
The "Application Catalog" Itself looks similar to the image below. Not all colleges, divisions, and departments have access to the same software applications, due to licensing, and other restrictions. The "Application Catalog" will only show programs that are available for that user to install.
The "Search" and "Browse By Category" sections will allow you to quickly find the software applications you are looking for. For example, to install the products included in the new site license of Adobe "Creative Cloud" select the "Creative Cloud" category, or search for "Creative Cloud"
If you encounter problems installing software applications through the "Application Catalog", please contact the ITS Service Desk or your local support group.
To request additional software applications be added to the "Application Catalog", please contact the ITS Service Desk or your local support group, and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
