1. Make sure your system is running Windows 10 or 11.  To access the course software through the WUR AppStore, you need either an Education or a Professional (Pro) version of Windows 10 or Windows 11. If you are using a Home version of Windows, you will automatically receive an update to Windows Education. You must reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
Please see the Windows Education upgrade article for more information.

NB. The WUR AppStore is only available through Windows 10 or 11. If you use a MacBook you first need to buy Windows 10 or 11 Education and Parallels Desktop on to run Windows on a Mac. 
Make sure your system is up to date.  The WUR AppStore might not work if your Windows version is not up to date.

Please check for available Windows updates by clicking on 'Start', select 'Settings' and navigate to 'Update & Security'. Make sure to install all available updates before continuing.
