CedarNet: Virtual Lab (VLab) Quick Start Guide

Information technology provides Cedarville University's Virtual Lab (VLab) for personal computers.

Click the [Printable Instructions] button below for VLab easy installation and usage instructions. Instructions are available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.


Because of recent updates to VLab, you should avoid using a shortcut and open an Internet browser and navigate directly to vlab.cedarville.edu instead.

Also, if you have used VLab in the past and have recently updated your computer to Windows 10, you will need to download the newest Citrix receiver. (Navigate to citrix.com > hover mouse over Downloads tab > click Download Receiver link > click [Download Receiver 4.3 for Windows].) Install the new receiver by double-clicking on the CitrixReceiver.exe file.

Installing VLab on your personal computer will allow you to access the following University-licensed CedarNet software programs from your personal computer - instead of using a University-provided computer in a computer lab or classroom.
