virtual applications

Library and Technology Services is retiring the Virtual Public Site, which offered users a way to run software virtually within a full desktop environment, on Thursday, August 17. In its place, users will run individual software titles on an as-needed basis.

As previously announced, virtualizing individual software packages provides a much faster and more reliable method for accessing select programs.

Virtual software allows users to run programs not installed on their computers by accessing them through the Horizon VMware Client, which is available for Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.

Instructions for using virtual software are available at
