I have a quick question regarding FindiT utility. I have a small office where we have a few Cisco items that can use FindiT. When I installed it it's asking for my OS credentials. But the problem is that the machine I've installed it on, the OS doesn't use a password, it just logs in automatically to the OS upon restart. Hence not being able to log into FindIT.
Windows 10 Firefox
Any help is appreciated here, thanks
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. We've looked into the issue and believe we have a reasonable fix that will allow for this type of install. It is a little complicated, and so far, you are the only person who has reported trying to do this, so the plan is to include the fix in the next release of FindIT. That is still a little while off however, so I wanted to understand how badly this is impacting you, and whether you need an immediate solution?
There are two possible things that could be happening here.
Windows 10 may not prompt you to enter a login password when it is powering up or waking from sleep either because you have set it to not ask for password or there is no password, which is less likely.
In Windows 10 > Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options > Require Sign-in > 'Never'
# If you do not see 'Never' selected here then you really don't have a password
# But if never is selected here then you probably have a password set and you need to find a way to remember it or reset it
You may try right clicking the FindIT .exe setup file and choose 'Run as Administrator'
And use Internet explorer (Not the edge version) on Windows 10 for FindIT.
Type iexplore.exe in RUN window if you have trouble locating the regular IE in Win 10.
