SharedChemOperators: how it works? / Como funciona?

(Abajo en español)

Looking the user's guide "Agilent ChemStation Security Pack for UV-Visible Spectroscopy", when talking about "ChemStation Access Control", it is mentioned that the group SharedChemOperator could be used in order to avoid that only the user who locked the Windows session can unlock the computer.

However, we don't know correctly how it works. We have tried that: an user that belongs to the SharedChemOperator group  logon to the computer with his account and log on to the UV-Visible ChemStation, he starts a dissolution run and the Windows security lockout is used. Other user, that also belongs to the group, unlock Windows with his account, logon to the ChemStation but is unable to control the ChemStation and an error message appears about an unexpected closing. Why? What are we doing wrong?


Alguien trabaja con el grupo "SharedChemOperators" y sabe como funciona? Según el pantallazo que adjunto arriba, parece que se puede usar con el objetivo de que aunque el ordenador este bloqueado por un usuario, pueda ir otro usuario perteneciente a ese grupo y desbloquearlo,o eso he querido entender. Nos pasa con ensayos de disolución largos, que si lo empieza un usuario (con usuario de Windows propio), se va y el ordenador se bloquea, un usuario de otro turno no puede continuar con el ensayo.  Alguien sabe si se puede usar esto o como funciona? Lo probamos y nos da un error de que la sesión se ha cerrado inesperadamente y no podemos tomar el control del equipo.

Un saludo y gracias

  • Hello,


    I marked your post as a question and added tags to increase visibility. I also moved it to the molecular spectroscopy section of the Community where it is more likely that someone who uses/supports UV-Vis ChemStation will see it. 

  • Hello rebeca

    I am sorry for the delayed response.  As far as I can tell you are using the SharedChemOperators as intended.


    Please reply with the error message.  Also, I need revisions or versions for the following software:

    1. Microsoft Windows edition, System Type, and Service Pack version. ( Control Panel\System and

    Security\System. (e.g. Windows 7, 64 bit, SP1))

    1. The revision of the UV Vis ChemStation, including build number. (e.g. B.05.04[8])
    1. All applications loaded. (e.g. G1115AA General Purpose, G1116AA Advanced, G1117AA Biochemical analysis, G1118AA Dissolution)


    Best regards,


  • Thank you for the response. I consulted with the technical service and I have given up this option.
