AppsAnywhere

Access Missouri S&T provided software anywhere.

Welcome to S&T's AppsAnywhere. AppsAnywhere is a software virtualization platform that allows certain S&T provided software to be accessed from all CLC computers, IT managed computers, and personal devices running Windows 10. 

If you are having trouble with using AppsAnywhere, check out the Troubleshooting instructions at the bottom of the page.

 

Due to licensing restrictions, some software is not available outside of the CLCs or on Personal Devices. If you are missing an application you need, you can try launching it through Horizon VDI. Find out how to connect to the VDI.

 

How to Connect

1. Open AppsAnywhere

From the desktop, select the AppsAnywhere icon. It will open a web browser for you to log into.

Troubleshooting Instructions

If you are unable to validate when going to https://appsanywhere.mst.edu you can try these steps:

  1. Refresh the page.
  2. Log out of AppsAnywhere then log back in.
  3. Close your browser completely then relaunch AppsAnywhere.
  4. Reboot your machine.
  5. Kill any AppsAnywhere related processes (not Cloudpaging or Jukebox).
  6. Restart the AppsAnywhereService service.

 

If you are unable to launch a specific application or any applications at all you can try the steps below:

  1. Revalidate your session by logging out of AppsAnywhere and logging back in (follow steps above "Unable to Validate" if needed).
  2. Check that AppsAnywhere and Cloudpaging Player are both installed on your machine.
    1. Go to the Windows search bar at the bottom left of your screen.
    2. Type "control panel".
    3. In the Control Panel search bar at the top right of the screen, type in "uninstall a program" and click Enter.
    4. Scroll down the list to see if you have "AppsAnywhere" or "Cloudpaging Player".
    5. If you don't see it, log into https://appsanywhere.mst.edu to make sure it gets installed.
  3. Most applications require 64-bit Windows 10. (Some non-Cloudpaged software may be available).

 

At this point, the application has already been launched through AppsAnywhere, and the errors are coming from Cloudpaging Player. Errors at this stage may indicate an issue with the package.
