Q: When I first run the CoCGMS I'm asked for a default name and then I'm prompted for a login. What's up with that?
A: FileMaker has evolved over the years. Early versions of the software relied on a user name defined in the application itself for certain usage within specific databases. These days with Microsoft Active Directory driving security and user identity, this local user identity isn't needed very often but is still kept for backward compatibility. When you first run a FileMaker runtime database, the runtime engine needs to store this local user name though for the CoCGMS it is not needed.
