Windows 7 Advanced VM Image

Fourth Image from SCA Series; Windows 7

This image is the final image in the “Summer Career Academy” training series that was held at SoCalCCCC’s Cypress College in 2015. This image has been set to advanced, covering most of the possible areas a team should secure during the competition. This image, as the rest 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.
