Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started with rCloud?

There are two ways to use rCloud:

  1. You can click the install button to download the application on your Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, Linux, iOS, or Android device. This allows you to connect to your virtual desktop applications from your device of choice. Make sure you are using the correct set of instructions for your device.
  2.  If you don't have administrative privileges to install software on your device, click here to run rCloud right through your web browser without any installation. If you need help click on the Contact link for resources.
