Install Microsoft Expression Web 4 from the UW Network

Introduction

Note: Functional knowledge and use of this application is the responsibility of the user.

The University of Wyoming (UW) is a participating member of the Microsoft Academic Select License Program. As a member, UW is able to secure volume pricing on various Microsoft products. This significantly reduces the costs incurred by UW departments and colleges and some UW cooperating agencies.

For UW departments, Microsoft applications that are not included as part of the base Microsoft Office Professional packages fall under this program and are fee-based. Further information on this program, the eligibility requirements, and the necessary steps for attaining a license to a specific Microsoft product can be found on the UW Select Web page (www.uwyo.edu/InfoTech/Services/Software/select/), or call 766-3686.

For ease of installation of many Microsoft applications, Information Technology (IT) provides network installation points. These network locations are restricted to UWYO domain accounts, and the Microsoft licenses restrict the installation of these products to UW-owned computers only. For applications that are fee-based, you will not have access to the network location until a departmental IDR or procurement card (P-card) payment is received by IT.
