At Sheffield Hallam University, there’s now a new way to access software. We’ve launched AppHub, a platform that gives you access to a range of applications that you can launch as you use them. To use AppHub, launch the app from a university PC or laptop. You can browse through the apps or use the search box to find the one you’re looking for. Click launch; your application should begin virtualising. Once it has finished virtualising, the application will launch automatically. You can then start to use it as you would do normally.
If you’ve used the application via AppHub once, and you’d like to use it again, you can do so without having to go through AppHub. To do this, you need to open the ‘cloudpaging player’ from the notification area on the bottom right of your screen.Your previously virtualised apps can be launched from here.
