Ah, passwords! There can never be enough of them, right? Ha. Ha. And usernames! Folks just love having several usernames to keep track of. For example, my windows username is JHILL, but my GoldMine username is JUSTIN.
If you want to make it easy for your end users to remember their GoldMine username and password, why not just supply it for them within their shortcut? This is surprisingly easy to do;
1. Right-click your GoldMine shortcut (typically on your windows desktop) and select Properties.
2. In the "Target" field, you need to add a few "command line switches". Don't be scared, it's just a fancy way to say we need to add some text here.
So, if my Target box reads : C:\Program Files (x86)\GoldMine\gmw.exe
I need to add the following text to the end of it, like this;
C:\Program Files (x86)\GoldMine\gmw.exe /u:JUSTIN /p:password
3. Hit apply and OK your way out.
The "/u:" allows you to pass the username. The "/p:" allows you to pass the password. Have fun!
