NOTE: E-mail software often renames incoming files, and the Geographic Calculator will not recognize a license with a name other than GeographicCalculator.lic as being valid. If your saved file has any other name, please rename it to GeographicCalculator.lic before attempting to import.

2. Open the Geographic Calculator. As a default, the application will display the license manager at start-up. If no license is present, it will display 'None' as the License Type (Figure 2):
