Download and install software
Department of Computer Science with Microsoft help activate a specific website to download and install software. The process to activate an account on this website (which is essential) is the following:
- all students (undergraduate and postgraduate) sign a special document and take it to technical support (room 001).
- staff can contact technical support through e-mail or through Helpdesk
- Technical Support prepares an account for them and the password is sent to them through email
Using this account, users can download software from the website: http://cs-ucy.onthehub.com
Protection of agreement
The department thinks that MSDNAA agreement is a very important tool since it offers valuable software on the Department and its students totally free, and for that reason department wants to protect it. Any software that violate the agreement, violates the regulations of the University and may be contrary to the laws. For that reason all and especially students should protect this privilege that the Department offers. Violation of the agreement between Department and Microsoft will have as a result interruption of access and referral to the competent bodies of the Department and the University of Cyprus.
Referral to errors and problems
In case you have any problem on downloading software or/and during software installation note the problem exactly as it (if you can, do a screen dump - with the error output) and sent it to IT team. You can also write the problem on Helpdesk.
