Managed Software Update Tool

Use Managed Software Center to update existing software on your UWB Mac manually.

 

Background:

Mac computers managed by the UW Bothell IT department have a program to install and update both Apple system software and third party software like Firefox, Office, Skype and other pre-installed software.

Using the Managed Software Center:

You can run the Managed Software Center program from multiple locations on your Mac.

If you have the icon below on your dock you can click on it and launch the program.

You can also locate the program in the applications folder.

After Managed Software Center is launched, you can navigate to the update section by clicking the updates icon on the toolbar.

If there is an update, it will be listed under the updates section (shown below as an example). Some updates may require you to log out or restart the system, be sure to save your current work before applying any update.

Click update all to begin the process (shown below as an example).

Once it is completed or there is no update available, you will see the following.
