For off-campus access, you need to connect through your organization's network; we suggest going through a VPN provided by your organization or perhaps Windows Remote Desktop access to your office PC.

Eventus 9 for Windows includes a printable copy of the documentation that is installed on your PC along with the software. We recommend running Check for Eventus 9 Update at least once a month to keep both the software and the documentation up to date. For a limited time, authorized users of Eventus 8 for Windows also can install the latest edition of the printable User's Guide by selecting Check for Eventus 8 Update from the Start menu folder for Eventus. (In a few cases the menu item will read True Update instead of Check for....)
