On some networks, stringent protocols are in place to limit user access to system resources. This prevents users from doing basic functions such as editing the Windows registry. This may prevent a user of the PC from successfully installing and operating the DownStream Technologies software or License Manager. If this occurs, you must contact your network administrator to assist with the installation.
