    Can the Username: field in the GoldMine login screen be blank by default?


    Resolution

    There is no possibility to have a blank username field upon login.
    One of three conditions will determine how that field is populated.


    1.  USER=<username> entry in the [GOLDMINE] section of the GM.ini file.
         - <username> is a valid GoldMine user, and will populate the Username: field of everyone who starts GoldMine.

    2.  USER= entry is not present in GM.ini.
         - When the USER= entry is absent from GM.ini, the Username: field of the GoldMine login screen, will be populated with the first eight characters of the user's Windows login.

    3.  Add the /u:<username> switch to the Target in the GoldMine shortcut (please refer to Knowledge-base article #11271).
         - This overrides both of  the GM.ini conditions described above.
         - <username> is a valid GoldMine user, and will populate the Username: field for the Windows user, starting GoldMine, who modified the Target in their GoldMine shortcut.
         - Knowledge-base article #11271 can also be used to modify the GoldMine start-up in Start > All Programs > GoldMine > GoldMine.
         - This is user specific where each user can use his/her GoldMine userid in the /u: switch.
         - If you had GoldMine pinned to the Taskbar prior to adding the /u: switch, unpin GoldMine from the Taskbar, then from the modified shortcut, pin GoldMine to the Taskbar.
