Can the Monitor Pro 7 password be changed after the initial installation of the software?


When Monitor Pro 7 is installed two services are configured to run on the computer. They are the FactoryLink AutoStart service and the Factorylink License Manager. These two services must be running in order for Monitor Pro 7 to work correctly. Monitor Pro 7 uses the account and password that installed the software package to start these services. When the password is changed, it does not propagate down to the services. This means that Monitor Pro can no longer start the services that it requires to run.

The fix is very simple. Please follow these steps depending on your operating system.
