Install Cube Browser
Cube Browser is the common user interface for all cubes. Cube Browser is installed in minutes like any other Windows program. Go to Downloads for details. If you are able to start Cube Browser and type into the log-in fields Cube Browser is set up and ready for use.
As long as you have an Internet connection available you should not need to do any further customization for Cube Browser to work. However, many companies have strict firewalls or use proxy servers, which require specific settings. In such cases it might be necessary to configure Cube Browser before use. Read more about configuration here.
Registering the License Key
You will receive an email with your license key. In the log-in window choose Register a new license key. Paste in your license key and choose your username and password. Press Register. When the log-in dialog reappears log in with your username and password. Your personal username and password allow you to log in on any computer. Your username and password are personal, and not to be shared with others.
