Installing your site license as an end user

Please read this page if your institution has purchased an FCS Express site license and you wish to install a site license copy on your computer.

Every site license has a dedicated site license administrator. You will need to contact your site license administrator in order to obtain the configuration file required to activate the site license. If you do not know who your site license administrator is, please contact

To install your site license, please follow the following instructions:

1. Download the FCS Express installation program for the version of FCS Express that you have a site license for.

2. Install the software as the standalone version.

3. Run the program the first time. A wizard will appear to help you put the configuration file you received from your site license administrator in the correct location. Choose the Using a configuration file I already received option and select the configuration file you received from your site license administrator.

4. Start FCS Express.

When FCS Express starts, you will see a login screen. Enter the user name and password provided to you by your site license administrator.

Note to site license administrators

If you are the site license administrator, and are installing FCS Express for the first time, the default username is admin and the default password is password. Please change this as soon as possible. Instructions for changing your password and administering your site license are here.
