Installing Software through SCCM Software Center

You can download software to your office computer by using Software Center from Microsoft System Center 2012.

Please Note: 

  • Some installations, such as Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Cloud products, are quite large and can take some time to download and install.  It is highly recommended that you only initiate an install at a time when your computer can be left powered on and connected to the network for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
