Client Security configurations may change Globalyzer Workbench database settings

Some configurations of the operating system have a password manager which interferes with the software password or other configuration settings. In order to run Globalyzer successfully, the user may have to disable the system security.

For example, on Lenovo Windows 7, the database settings can be overwritten due to the Password Manager. Executing C:\Program Files\Lenovo\Client Security Solution\css_pwmgr_toggle.exe will resolve this problem.

Depending on the OS and the client security settings, similar actions may be needed for other systems.
