To start Metastudio copy Metastudio DRM installation package (file ms3.war) to the tomcat application folder named “webapps”.  If Tomcat application server is installed in the “c:\tomcat” location, it will be the “c:\tomcat\webapps” folder. Run Tomcat application server if it has not already been started.
