## You have selected an invalid file type. Select a valid License (.bin) or (.zip) file and try again. ##


also i uploaded the .zip file 


## Please verify the file you are attempting to install is a license file. If it is a license file, the file is corrupted, so, for assistance, open a Service Request using the TAC Service Request Tool, send an email to or contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) at 800-553-2447. ##


i don't know from where i get .bin file

If you managed to get a demo license file you likely would be able to request help via TAC if you have problems with the upload.
