Instructions for running VMware view

2. Double-Click the "view.ion.uwplatt.edu" server.
2. Enter your UW-Platteville NetID and password. Click Login.
3. Select appropriate machine, i.e. "Bears Den" by double-clicking.
Your Virtual Machine will load now. Once it loads you should see the standard Windows desktop. When you are finished working, you can go to the Start Menu and select “Shut Down” like you would on a regular computer.
