OSX and Windows

2. Run the FLU as Administrator or as a Root user.

NOTE: On Windows you can run the FLU as administrator by using the right click context menu option 'Run as administrator'.

3. Either drag and drop the license file (usually called foundry.lic) or copy and paste the full license key text in to the 'License Install' tab of the FLU.
 
The FLU should report that the license was successfully installed and list the location(s) where it is saved.

Save the license as a plain text file called "foundry.lic" in the same location as the unzipped FLU
