  1. Login to the TimeLive application as a low-level (standard) user
  2. Click "My Projects" from the left-hand menu
  3. Click the "Manage" icon - It looks like a notepad and pen
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page that opens and click "Attachment"
  5. Click "Browse" and navigate to to where you saved "run-cacl.exe"
  6. Click "Upload"
  7. Logout of TimeLive [Optional]
