Windows 7 Intermediate VM Image

Third Image from SCA Series; Windows 7

This image is the third image in the "Summer Career Academy" training series that was held at SoCalCCCC's Cypress College in 2015. This image has been set to intermediate, adding more areas for students to analyze and correct. This image, as with the other SCA images can also be used as a set for a team that wants to practice their Windows skills.

The image is in a zipped file; please extract the complete contents of the zipped file before running the image on VMware Workstation Player. There is no password to extract the contents. Students should log in as "SCA;" there is a readme text file and a scoring engine shortcut on the desktop.
