The 64-bit version of the Microsoft Vista operating system is now available for installation on university-owned and managed computers. Upgrading to Vista allows the use of many new software packages needed for campus academic and administrative work.
New computers purchased through the desktop enhancement program and computers rebuilt by IT will come loaded with Vista. While support for older computers using Windows XP will still be available, IT is working to transition all Windows-based computers on campus to the Vista operating system.
Computers must have hardware capable of running Vista prior to installation. For more information about the upgrade, including details about the hardware required to run Vista, visit helpdesk.mst.edu/facultystaff/vista.html.
To request installation of Microsoft Vista on your computer, call the IT Help Desk at 341-HELP (4357).
