Once you have entered your contact details, click on the Next button. The next screen in the Licensing Assistant is for setting up your internet connection. For most people, you can leave this at the default of "Direct connection". Your company may use a firewall system that requires your to go through a proxy server.

The next panel of the Licensing Assistant tells you what is happening and asks you to look in your inbox of your email client. You should expect the email to arrive within a couple of minutes. The license will be a file attached to the email message. Save the file to a location on your computer, making sure that you remember where you saved it.
