Why are some applications not available when I access the portal on my personal Computer? 

The License needs to allow “Home Use” to allow the University to make software applications available on personal devices.

If I already have a version of an application installed, can I still run it through AppsAnywhere? 

To avoid installation conflicts, we recommend removing any other versions of an application prior to running it through AppsAnywhere.

Why did I get a licence error when I launched an application? 

Some applications require access to licence servers on the College network. Make sure that your device is connected to college network. You may check “How to connect to college Wi-Fi network” guide or contact IT Service Desk

When I try and use an application I get the following error - “Unable to Contact Server”, what do I need to do? 

Some applications require permanent connection  access to the college  Wi-Fi network. Make sure that your device is connected to college network. If you have disconnected or lost connection you will need to reconnect. You may check “How to connect to college Wi-Fi network” guide or contact IT Service Desk

What if my device fails validation?  

In most cases a refresh of the page will resolve this issue but if you are still experiencing difficulties, reinstall the Cloudpaging player software or contact the IT Service Desk.
