    No login prompt on Client Installation


      Product and version FileMaker Pro 14.0.4 / Server 13v5

      OS and version   Windows 7 / Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

      Browser and version


      Description - One Client Machine does not prompt for login info when FM Pro is Started.   Logs in as a Guest automatically.  All data access is restricted.   Client used to work without issue for over 2 years up until this morning.  Have reinstalled filemaker, restarted server, and done a system restore on the client and issue continues.


      How to replicate

      Workaround (if any) - unable to find one.

          After more experimenting, I've determined the connecting to the server is fine.  But the client is automatically logging in as a Guest.   How do I stop that from happening?

            Thank you for your posts.


            Hold down the shift key as you open the file, and you will be prompted for Account Name and Password.  If there is an option to save to Credential Manager, then make sure that box is unchecked.


            Once the file is open, pull down the File menu and select "File Options...".  Under the "Open" tab, make sure when opening "Log in using:" is unchecked.  This will then prompt you each time the file is opened.
