There are three access options available: Standard Workflow, User Management and Audit Trail Only and Compliance Mode (see Figure 1).

b. Activate User Management and Audit Trail Only. Enables viewer, reasons management, and prompt dialogs (audit trail always occurs). Acquisition software has the login access based on Windows User management and Security Groups. During installation, the software creates four Windows security groups: Acquisition Analysts I; Acquisition Analysts II; Acquisition Analysts III; Acquisition Managers. Group privileges are editable.
c. Compliance Mode. Compliance support features with ECM will be installed, this option requires that the computer is connected to an ECM server and the ECM client is already installed on this computer. For information on login access, please contact an Agilent Support Representative for assistance.
During the software installation, the operator will be asked to choose one of the Feature types (Figure 1).

If the “default” password is changed, this procedure will not work. You could disable the security by clicking the menu Security Control - Disable Security (see Figure 2), you will not be prompted to enter a password.
