Install Logger Pro 3.15

This is a two- to three-step process: first, you may need to uninstall a previous version; then you install Logger Pro 3.14.1, and then you upgrade to version 3.15.

  1. Get the Logger Pro installer.
    1. Connect to the academicstore server using your Wellesley username and password
      (you may need to enter wellesley\username instead of just your username):
      • use Start or Run, then type \\academicstore\software
      • Got an error?
        • try academicstore.wellesley.edu instead of just academicstore
        • make sure your computer, if on campus, is connected to the Wellesley Secure WiFi network
        • if off campus, connect to the VPN
    2. Open the folder containing the installer: facstaffstudents, then LoggerPro.
      It may take a moment for the folders to appear.
    3. (TIPS if you have trouble accessing the installer)
