    Resolution

     

    [CAUSE]
    - This is due to a user name set to the 'Default Login User':
    - Log in to GoldMine as a user with master rights:

    1. Tools > Options > 'Login' tab > 'Default Login User' drop down

    - To change this to populate the logged in Windows account:

    1. Browse out to the GoldMine root directory folder on your application server
    2. Locate and create a backup of the gm.ini file 
    for example Right click > copy > right click > paste within the same directory
    3. Open the gm.ini file within notepad
    4. Locate the line User=<user name> 
    - <user name> being populated with the affected user name
    5. Delete the user name, leaving only the 'User=' entry
    6. Save and close the file

    - Alternatively, the login screen can be populated with a specific GoldMine user name via a short cut on the workstation's desktop:
