  6. Click Browse (see arrow A in Figure 4).

  7. Locate the license file.

    If you want to add a single license file, specify the path to the relevant .lic file. If you want to add multiple license files, you can upload each .lic file, one at a time. Alternatively, you can create a .zip file that contains all the files, and upload a single .zip file (see arrow B in Figure 4).

    Note: If you use a .zip file, remember that the system uploads only the files in the root of the .zip file.

  8. Click Upload to load the new license file (see arrow C in Figure 4).

    If the license loads successfully, this message appears (see arrow A in Figure 5):

    License file uploaded to the server successfully.
