If you are talking about Active Directory then you likely have a Pro version of windows 10. This means that you can use the internal user manager to create a Non-Microsoft linked account on that workstation.

Microsoft linked accounts require a very different authentication method that is currently incompatible with the needs of dbFront.

To create a local Administrative account you can do the following.

  • Right-click on Start
  • Click on Computer Management
  • Open "Local Users and Groups"
  • Create or select a Non-Microsoft connected user.
  • Ensure that the user is a member of the Administrators group.

An administrator account is required to manage the set up of dbFront.
