Need help connecting to Windows BIS/Mapper 10

Need help connecting to Windows BIS/Mapper 10

Need help connecting to Windows BIS/Mapper 10

Dear experienced Mapper engineers,

I've got what probably will end up being a silly question from a total newbie. I've been asked to take a look at BIS/Mapper, and to get familiar it I procured a copy of the Windows (Vista) BIS 10 software.

I setup a test site "A" and can connect via MapAdmin:

>> Process ended.
>> MAPPER site is online and available to users.
>> Server connection completed to <hostname>_A

However, I cannot seem to login via the Graphical User Interface as "NewUser" or anyone else.

Please see the attachment "Windows_tmpl_HostAcc_Script.jpg" for the Windows template script I created via menu "File" -> "Script Administration" -> "Create Script". When using "File" -> "Open Session" with the script, an "MPCCOM Error" dialog about "incorrect login details or networking error, please contact Systems Admininstrator" appears. There is a disk trace as attachment "Windows_mpctrace.txt".

I also tried an alternative credentials template-based script and at least got to the main GUI BIS login screen (see attachment "Mapper_GI_Login.jpg"). However, pressing SIGNON to login as NewUser does not work (simply displays login screen again), nor can I try another login (I don't know any). The alternative credentials script is shown in attachment "AltCred_tmpl_HostAcc_Script.jpg", and the disk trace is "AltCred_mpctrace.txt".

I tried "MapperGuest" as the Windows login but behavior was not different.

Lastly, the user guide references "Using the AGENDA Script to Register Users", and says to "Sign on as the administrator in department 2". Does anyone know the exact Mapper username and default password for administrator?

Any help you can provide in this area would be greatly appreciated.
