Supported Computer Software
Information Technology Services consulting staff are prepared to assist any Dartmouth student, faculty, or staff member with any of the software listed below. We have experience with and resources available to provide support.
You may choose to use applications not found on this list. In fact, many other items are available for purchase through the Computer Store or are available for download from the Software Downloads page (which is a subset of what is available here and supported by Information Technology Services). Other groups on campus may provide support for these applications or for other operating systems.
If the operating system or software you are using or planning to purchase does not appear on this list, please contact your department's IT support office. They may be able to offer alternatives or refer you to a more appropriate group or outside resource for support.
Note: Due to limited resources, we generally do not provide support for software older than four years or for non-English versions of operating system installations. We also do not support software no longer supported by the manufacturer or pre-released (alpha or beta) versions of any computer software.
See specific details about the Dartmouth and Microsoft Campus Agreement.
