Connecting to Microsoft Project

Via Web Browser:

Logging into Wildcat Lab from the web browser is the easiest solution and you can do it from any device that has a web browser, though screen size may be a factor in the usability of the actual Windows environment.

  • Navigate to the login page and log in with your username@csuchico.edu.
  • You will be given access to the "Wildcat Lab." Click the computer icon, and it will ask you for permission from your local resources. Here you can choose what you would like the virtual desktop to have access to.
  • After selecting the resources you want the virtual desktop to have access to, click "Allow." Following this, you will be prompted with a login screen.
  • Enter your Chico State username and password once again, this login does not require @csuchico.edu. After this, you should be logged into a lab machine now. 

Remote Desktop Client (PC)

If you are on a Windows machine, you can download a client to run the Wildcat Lab session instead of running it in a web browser. The download is available here. You will be asked if you want to install for just yourself, or for everyone. If you choose to install it for everyone, you will need to be an Administrator on that machine.

  • Once the remote Desktop App is installed, open the app and hit the "Subscribe" button.
  • This will prompt you to sign in with your Chico State account. Please make sure to subscribe with username@csuchico.edu.
  • Once logged in, you should see a list of computers that you can access. Click on one, and it will bring up a new sign-in window. Simply enter in your Chico State username and password here (no @csuchico.edu) and you will be signed into the lab machine.

Remote Desktop Client (Mac)

If you are on an Apple/Mac machine, you can download a client to run the Wildcat Lab session instead of running it in a web browser. The download is available here. You will be asked if you want to install for just yourself, or for everyone. If you choose to install it for everyone, you will need to be an Administrator on that machine.

  • Once the remote Desktop App is installed, open the app and hit the "Connections" tab. 
  • Next click "Add Workspace." It should then prompt you to insert an email or workspace URL. Enter the following URL and click "Add".

    https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/api/arm/feeddiscovery

     
  • When prompted, log in with the @csuchico.edu Microsoft Account.
  • Before you access the Project app, click on preferences (gear icon). Select file redirection, and change the dropdown from "none" to "use folder".  Select your desktop and click choose. 
  • Now you can find the Project App under General Workstation.
