7. Launch GoLive. Enter your serial number (in the form of XXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX) and make sure the "MenuMachine successfully activated" screen has displayed in GoLive on your first launch.

8. Create a new blank site with GoLive. Open the automatically-created index.html page and place a MenuMachine 1 object on the page using the object in the Objects > basic palette.
Save the page.

9. Look back in the site window and make sure the GeneratedItems folder has been created and it contains the files menumachine.js and spacer.gif.

10. Edit the Menu and save.

If you make it through all these steps without errors, MenuMachine 1 is working properly.
