Hoping someone can provide some info! I was recently using our E.02.02 MSD Chemstation and I noticed an option in the top/instrument & run control section of the software to turn on the security/compliance option. I check marked the option in the menu and now I am prompted to enter a user name & password. I restarted the PC, and now to even open the software, I am required to enter the user name & password.

I'm guessing there is a default user name & password that I can enter? If so, can someone tell me what it is? I couldn't find it in the manual.

Thank you so much!

I thought there was a simple default password assuming nobody has changed it, but I haven't found it. I did find this in an old thread that might do the trick.

The last couple posts show to delete a line in the WIN.INI file in the chemstation directory. If that is present it may do the trick.
The past is there to guide us into the future, not to dwell in.
