Goals and Symptoms

Causes and Fixes


The windows user account is not a member of the APMAdmin, APMControl, and APMUser groups.


To add the user to the APM groups:

3. Select Users, and right click on the username that is being used
4. Click on properties, then go to "Member of" tab
5. Add APMAdmin, APMControl, and APMUser and apply changes
6. The user must log off Windows before the changes take affect

It is also a good idea to add the webpage to the trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer:

1. In Internet Explorer go to Tools->Internet Options
2. Click on the Security tab
3. Click on trusted sites, and click on the Sites button
4. Under "Add this site to the zone", enter http://computername/ (substitute "computername" with actual name of computer) and click OK
