Meeting Application doesn’t ask for credentials and not all features available – Dicentis MA
The Meeting Application does not provide all the options it did before and the application does not request any log-in credentials when first started and simply starts.
It was found that the “automatic login” feature in the configuration file was set to ‘true’ so the application logged in automatically. The user that was logged in automatically did not have all required permissions.
Details on the automatic login feature (from Dicentis Software Manual):
By default, the Meeting Application will automatically log in when the windows login username is the same as a username in the Dicentis system. In this case, the authorization rights of this user will be used for the Dicentis Meeting Application.
The default Username is “admin” and the password is empty. The default language is the language of the operating system; if the default language is not available, English is automatically selected.
