Cornell College is piloting a method of virtually deploying software called Remote App. Remote App allows students, faculty , and staff to run College owned software on a personal Windows or Apple laptop.  Students unable to use a personal laptop for a Remote App class have the option to check out a loaner laptop.

*IT Note: SPSS is available as a Remote App, however we have seen better performance when installing the software to your computer.  To install the software, please connect your computer to the 'Apps' drive (G:) using the instructions found here.  Once connected to the Apps drive, navigate to Apps_M-S\SPSS and follow the installation instructions.

For instructions on how to run a Remote App please click on your operating system.  We have also compiled a list of known issues and fixes here.

Windows 7 and Vista (This method also works for Windows 8 and above)
Windows 8 and above
Apple OSX Lion 10.7 and above
