Updating your computer for the WKU Lab Printing System

If you are a Gatton Academy student, faculty, or staff with a laptop, please read this!

In March 2009, the lab printing system will be undergoing some major changes. One significant change is all computer lab Print Release Stations will require you to use your own WKU ID Card to release your own print jobs. When you swipe your WKU Big Red ID Card at a Print Release Station, you will no longer see everyone's print jobs--but only your own. You will no longer be able to swipe any person's WKU ID Card to be able to print your jobs.

Because of this change, there is an update that needs to be applied to your WKU Gatton Academy laptop. This program (below) updates your lab printing credentials (username and password) so that the lab printing system will correctly recognize you as the correct person when you attempt to print to the Gatton Academy computer lab printers in room 304. Please download this program and "Run" it on your laptop. You only have to run it once and then you can delete this program.
