In response to a query on exactly *how* to use Font Creator Program
(FCP) to do the above:

   1.  Open the font file
   2.  On the menu bar, pulldown General->Metrics...this opens the
Metrics window.
   3.  Be sure the General tab on Metrics window is selected.   
   4.  In the center-right of window is the field "Font Embedding
Licensing Rights" -- pulldown/select "Installable".
   5.  Then "okay", then save the file.
