Validate the Session
1 AppsAnywhere will validate the session
During this process, AppsAnywhere will attempt to validate, determining which apps will be made available (macOS vs Windows versions).
2 You should then be met with a 'Validation Successful' banner
If AppsAnywhere fails to validate, you will receive a red 'Validation failed' banner. If this happens:
- Click on 'Retry'
- If that does not solve the issue restart your web browser and log back into Appsanywhere at https://appsanywhere.cca.edu
If you have uninstalled the AppsAnywhere client and no longer get an install prompt, we recommend the following:
- Access https://appsanywhere.cca.edu in “privacy” or “incognito” mode on your browser, which will enable you to correctly click the "Let's Go" button at It's my first time using AppsAnywhere on this device.
