Software Installation Overview

This document describes the basic steps involved in installing software on a personal computer. It's a very generalized procedure, and applies to installing any compiled software from any vendor on any operating system. Not all software installations will require all of the steps, and some operating systems and utilities automate some of the steps, but understanding each phase of an installation is helpful in understanding the process as a whole. Always be sure to read any specific instructions from the software vendor, distribution system, or your system administrator.

Connect HDMI Audio in a VGA-Equipped Laptop Classroom

Many of LTS's 'Laptop Classrooms' and other facilities provide only a VGA video input and a separate 2.5 mm Audio jack to access the room's sound system. This can cause an issue when connecting newer laptops using HDMI to VGA adapters. The laptop automatically disables the standard audio output jack when the adapter is connected to the HDMI jack, and routes its audio signal to the HDMI port. To access the audio stream, your HDMI adapter must be equipped with an audio output jack. Generally, this also requires that the adapter also be connected to a source of power -- usually a USB port.

Note: At the present time, Cisco Spark is only available to LTS. LTS is working towards general availability for the fall semester.
