  2. Select WINDOWS.
  3. Select REQUEST SOFTWARE.
  4. Login with your Deacnet credentials if prompted.
  5. You may get a security message about Silverlight at this point - here is what to do:
    • In CHROME, you may get a message saying "Silverlight Plugin needs your permission to run". If so, click the "X" in the browser address bar and select "Always allow plugins on installsoftware.help.wfu.edu" and click DONE.
    • In FIREFOX, you may get a message saying "Activate Silverlight". If so, just click "Allow and Remember".
    • In INTERNET EXPLORER, you may get a warning that the site is not in your trusted sites. If so, just click YES to add this site to your trusted sites.
