Installing EMS Desktop Client


The EMS desktop client is licensed to a limited number of users on campus whose business needs require administrative functionality in the system.

General everyday use is via University of Oregon EMS Web App.

System requirements

The EMS desktop client will only work with UO-managed, domain-joined Microsoft Windows PCs. Computers must have .NET Framework 4.6.2 or higher installed to use EMS desktop client. To determine if your system will meet those requirements, please consult with your local IT department. 

The EMS desktop client is installed on a per-user basis. Please note that the EMS desktop client requires the use of named-user accounts and does not permit access for role-based or departmental accounts. This means that each user that will log in to a multi-user computer will need to follow this process to install the software. The EMS desktop client software can be installed by users without administrative rights on the computer.

To request access to the EMS desktop client, please submit a service request.
