What to Do When Security Gets In The Way

In some companies there is an IT rule that users can’t be local PC Administrators, and the Power User settings are again limited from the defaults that come with a Windows installation.

In TF and other vendor applications this can play hacvoc when trying to set defaults, which are stored in file types that Windows Domain Security Policy does not allow to be changed.

One Example of this is the Default settings in Configuration, of TraceFinder. When a user tries to make adjustments to the default window settings, or the mass precision, for example. A message will popup saying these settings can’t be changed except by an domain or local PC administrator.

If this is the case then these settings can be adjusted under the General tab of the Master or Local Method.

If you are doing many different types of experiments this is the area you will make the changes for your different methods anyway.

So if you run up against the Security issue above. Just keep moving down the track and use the Master Method to make your adjustments.
