Reporting Issues

Any issues with the Windows VM should be reported through the CS Department Ticket System found at Please include as much detail as possible so that we can best troubleshoot the problem.

Using the VM

To begin using the Windows VM, click the “Start” button in the lower left hand corner, search “Windows VM” , and click the first option. It will then prompt you for a password. The password is “windows” (no quotes). Click “Power on this Virtual Machine” and wait for Windows to boot.


Anything saved on the C:\ drive will be deleted when the VM shuts down! Make sure to save all files to the F:\ drive!

Also, make sure that you do not submit shortcuts to TAs that point to the C:\ drive on the Windows VM. The shortcuts will be inaccessible and your work will be lost.
