The VMWare software library is for SIAT program faculty and students. The software is hosted on a server that requires you to have a valid SFU computing ID and be on a list of users that are eligible to download the software. Software is for Faculty and students to use while they are enrolled in or teaching SIAT courses. Once you are no longer a student nor an instructor in a SIAT course, all software licenses are void. Users are expected to remove, uninstall and otherwise dispose of the software at this point.
Having trouble logging on to the VMWare website? Students: please contact your SIAT faculty member to report an issue, as you likely aren't on the correct mailing lists. Faculty members: please contact IT Services - Surrey for assistance.
