License Key
To start the MFms System the user will require a License Key. The License Key can be obtained from MacgowanProductionS by sending email to or calling 651.225.9743. Currently only Beta Licenses are being issued.
When you install the MFms System the following registry key will be created.  Set this value to the License Key that you received from MacgowanProductionS.
User Logon
The MFms System uses a local logon system.  This logon is not associated with the Windows logon.  The user and password information is stored in a table called login in the MFms.mdb database.  There are three levels of access to the MFms System; Administrator, User and Guest.  See the online help for more information.
You can view the user logon information using Microsoft Access.  In the future the MFms System will provide a user management dialog and encrypted user information.
If you do not have Microsoft Access the following user information can be used to access the MFms System:
USER: user
PASSWORD: password
