When BCS Meta Man is installed on at least one of the servers in a SharePoint farm, and when you are logged in as a SharePoint farm administrator, the Lightning Tools custom connector for Salesforce® is installed on the SharePoint farm.

Once you have purchased the custom connector for Salesforce and have received the license key, you need to enter the key and activate the product via the Lightning Tools license manager which can be found in SharePoint Central Administration web site. You can activate the custom connector over the Internet or manually. Once a license key is activated, it will be associated with a specific SharePoint farm, and can not be activated on a different SharePoint farm. License keys are also specific to a Lightning Tools product, therefore you need a license key for each Lightning Tools product that you install on your SharePoint farm.
