Windows & OS X Application Specific Support

The OIT Help Desk currently offers support for the following software titles for the following recommended Operating systems:  

Windows:

Currently the OIT provides support for Windows 7, and Windows 8.  We do NOT recommend Windows 8 for faculty/staff workstations, as the interface changes are significant, with minimal benefit in functionality. Microsoft will discontinue support of Windows XP on April 8, 2014, the OIT will not be able to support of Windows XP after this date as well. 

Apple Macintosh:

Currently the OIT provides support for OS 10.7 and 10.8. Though the OIT also provides support for OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard), support from Apple is declining.

Supported Software

OIT staff have access to these products and will help with installation, configuration and usage, and may offer training and supplemental documentation.  University departments may provide and support additional applications not listed here.
