Don't want to read the instructions? Here's the steps in brief!

Register on the library portal. You will need to verify your email address before you can log in.
Clone the library repository from GitHub. We suggest using GitHub Desktop, and clone to C:\altium-library\.
Download your DbLib with pre-loaded connection string from the portal. Create a Server Login if you have not already. Save the file to the repository directory on your computer (C:\altium-library\). Connection problems? Download sqlncli.msi from Microsoft.
Use the library by adding it to your installed libraries. In Altium, go to File-based libraries preferences, Installed Tab, Install button and select the DbLib file. Component views should now appear in your Components panel.

Enter your details on the portal website, and wait for the verification email to arrive. This typically arrives instantly, but can take a couple of minutes at times.
