If you have a Build-A-Board.com account with Run-Time licenses (or will be purchasing Run-Time licenses), refer to the steps below as to how to license a Windows system. Please note the following information:

- The Windows run-time software included with Build-A-Board is meant for Platform license deployments. It does not include the IMG License Manager.
- So the quickest and easiest way to install the My-T-Soft run-time software for custom Build-A-Board layouts onto a Windows system is to download and install My-T-Soft Basic - this provides an installation/setup for My-T-Soft along with the IMG License Manager, which enables system licensing using your Build-A-Board.com account licenses.
