What is the Software Store?
The Software Store is the new way to request and install software on your Deakin PC. The Software Store makes it easy for you to find, request and download software. You will be able to access the Software Store via the shortcut in your Start menu or by visiting the store in your web browser.
The Software Store will work in conjunction with your existing Software Centre. The Software Centre will still show you the software that is already installed on your PC. However, now Deakin staff can use the Software Store to search for and request approval to install software.
Some software requests may require approval from your manager or from the application owner – the store will manage the approval process automatically and advise you of the result via email. Once approval is granted, the software will become available in your Software Centre. You can then use the Software Centre to download and install the software in the usual way. The software should be available within 2 hours of approval.
If you need to request software that isn’t available in the Software Store, you’ll be able to request new software in the Software store.
