  2. Create a folder named Users
  3. Go back to Start Menu > Fabrication CADmep (Year) Folder > Configure Users
  4. Select the correct database
  5. A new pop up will appear with a login screen:

  1. Type in the default Username and Password for the admin.

User: Administrator

Password: admin

 

  1. Configure Privileges and permissions for your users. The first screen will show users, ID’s, privileges and if it is a single user or not.

 

Create, Edit or Delete:

  1. Create New:

Click on “User” > “New” and fill in information:

User type = Log in name

(If you do not want a password leave it blank)

Option to enforce single log in and/ or create admin account.
