Step 1.

The first step involves pasting your Product License into the OtsReg dialog box. See below for an example of a Product License.

Step 2.

The second step involves taking the Machine License REQUEST, which is generated by OtsTurntables, to an internet-connected-machine and pasting it into the web page. See below for an example of a Machine License REQUEST.

Step 3.

The third and final step involves taking the Machine License, which has generated, back to the non-internet-connected machine and pasting it into the OtsReg window. See below for an example of a Machine License.


Manual method preparation

You will need to use a text editor, like Notepad, during the licensing process. You will need to create a simple text file that you will use to transport the license information between the non-internet-connected machine and the Internet connected machine. You will also need a transportable medium to transfer the text file, a floppy disk will suffice.

In preparation you will need to copy the Product License into Notepad and save the file onto a floppy disk, save it as License.txt.
