There are various ways to obtain IMG software, including (but not limited to):
Web based / Internet download from IMG's web site
Shipped CD / DVD physical media - IMG Product Disc
Download ISO image file and burn IMG Product Disc CD / DVD
USB Flash Drive (pre-installed or installed from USB media web download)
Single file install (from local network / internet / other media)
IMG on-line account
Note: IMG Software is built by product and major version with minor releases. There is only 1 unique build, but can be packaged / delivered / obtained in various ways. When unlicensed, the software acts as a demonstration / evaluation copy, and operation will be limited in length or run-time or capabilities. Once licensed (typically via License Key and Serial Number, or OEM / Company-wide / Enterprise licensing), the software will operate with no limitations.
Recommendation: The quickest and easiest method for obtaining IMG software is to download the current version from IMG's web site. Download, then run the file to install. Test, review, play with, and verify the software meets your needs and requirements. When ready to purchase, go to the IMG License Manager, and click on the "Purchase License Now" button. If working on a machine without internet access, use the Standard or MSI single file download, or use a Product Disc option. Separately, purchase the license for the product directly on the website - once you have your License Key and Serial Number, you can install and license the software.
The following outlines a standard retail Product Disc based install. For other options, refer to notes and details available at the source. In general, the approach is to install the software, then license the software. The Product Disc Installation Assistant provides an easy way to accomplish these two tasks.
In Windows, insert the CD or DVD - the AutoRun feature will load the Installation Assistant - you may Install a licensed product , Install other product demos, or view Release Information. If you have a Certificate of Authenticity, enter your License Key, Serial Number, and Name to Install and automatically License.
If AutoRun is not enabled:
In Windows, Click on the Start Button
Select D:SETUP, or type D:SETUP (or E:SETUP if CD / DVD drive E:, etc.)
Press (ENTER) or click on OK
In Windows Vista, you may not have the Run Option - select Computer, your CD/DVD drive, and open Setup
Answer the questions and follow the instructions on your screen
