Installing SFM

To install SFM, follow the below steps:
  1. Launch SFM.exe
  2. Press Next and accept the terms of service. You may need to install .net framework 3.5 when doing this as your device may not have it installed.

  3. Leave the install folder path as C:\Program Files (x86)\Shireburn\SFM\. Press Next.

  4. Copy the data path for SFM (this should be located where all Shireburn data is filed) and paste it into the path field, and then press the + plus button. The updated location should be filled automatically. 

  5. The serial number and serial key should be filled automatically. If these are not automatically filled in, please contact Shireburn support. If these fields are automatically filled in, press Next.

  6. Again press Next, and then Install.
  7. Once the installation is complete, press Close

It is important not to open SFM as you need to give rights to the installation folder.
