Installing and Registering the Desktop Recorder

Issue/Question

I am trying to record a video but it says I have to install and register my Desktop Recorder. How do I register it?

Cause

You register the recorder after you are prompted to download and install it. If that window is closed you can go back to it later to register the recorder.
