Preparing to install Building Design Suite 2013

Hello we already have an Autodesk network licensing server set up. We are using it for various Autodesk products. We just bought Building Design 2013, network key. I've downloaded the installation files onto the server. Please help me to understand how I should set up this software for employees to use. What do I install on the server, or change on the server? And what do I install or do on the workstations?


Thank you and have a nice day.
