Are you asking where it should go? There should be a folder under Macintosh HD, and it should be called ELab or EffectsLab. Put it in there.

Hope this helps,

Well it is confusing to me. What do you mean by "what file to put it under"? As far as I'm aware, you just move the key file into the folder "ELab"

Actually, you can put the program key anywhere you like, when you start the EffectsLab up it will ask for the key to unlock it, a dialog pops up asking for the location, which you can point it to. If you place the key on your desktop it will automatically find it, also I believe it looks in your Documents folder. I personally have mine all in Macintosh HD\<User>....\Documents\programKeys so I can always find it smile
