Client Installation


The Virtual Lab applications currently available are listed below. Clicking the icon or link for each application will download a Virtual Lab application launcher file for use with the Microsoft Remote Desktop client. More information about the Virtual Lab can be found here.

Attention Mac Virtual Lab users (update 2019.11.18): 

Microsoft has released an updated version of their Remote Desktop 10 client on the Mac App Store.  This version has been tested and works with our Virtual Lab environment.  We recommend removing Remote Desktop 8 and downloading/updating Remote Desktop 10 by searching for "Microsoft Remote Desktop 10" in the Mac App Store.
