Windows 8

Windows 8

W8 is currently not supported at ACU. As many of you will be aware new computers and tablets can now be purchased from vendors with Windows 8 pre-installed.  There are a number of processes that need to be in place prior to the adoption and support of Windows 8 within the ACU information environment.

1.  IT Support staff need to become skilled with the new Operating System;
2.  All teaching and administrative software applications in use at ACU need to be certified to run on the Windows 8 platform by the software vendors;
3.  We need to confirm that print services -both staff and student- will continue to function;
4.  We need to confirm wireless services will continue to remain accessible;

Because of this we have sourced a few guides and videos to help you use this new and exciting operating software. The ITD will continue to keep our users informed as we progress to supporting Windows 8. 
The university’s supported operating systems remain Windows 7 & XP.
