  3. Import the updated licence file to accept the licence update (Licence Update Import)
  4. After activating your licence insert your Network licence dongle into the Network Host computer (if it isn't already). Double click the TUFLOW Executable (for example TUFLOW_iSP_w64.exe) from the Network Host computer. A DOS window should open. Review the licence information listed. Check the licence types and numbers.
