It sounds like a component might not have been installed on the update. It might be worth uninstalling and then reinstalling Access Manager from a fresh download from the website. http://www.accessmanager.co.uk/download-free-version/
Let me know if this solves the problem.
I have uninstalled and then reinstalled Access Manager from a fresh download. It does not make any difference, it does not solve the problem.
Can you try to delete the AccessManager.cfg and/or the AccessManager.config file. The file is located in one or more of the following folders:
- C:\Users\’MyUserName’\AppData\Local\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
- C:\Program Files\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
- C:\Users\’MyUserName’\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Citi-Software\Access Manager 2\
Use Windows Explorer to search for and delete all copies of the configuration file and then try to start Access Manager again.
Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for your advice. This also did not solve the problem. Nevertheless I accidently discovered a curious phenomenon. When I drag the username or the password to a position for about two times the height of the fill up box below the fill up box then the mouse pointer changes appearance and when I deactivate the left mouse button the username or password is dropped in the fill up box. It seems that the mouse pointer on the screen and the real position of the mouse pointer do not match with each other.
That is a rather curious phenomenon. We have tried replicating the issue but cannot get it to occur.
Can you check that Windows is up to date with the latest updates?
Are you using two screens at different resolutions?
Sorry Admin for the delayed answer.
I have checked that Windows is up to date with the lataest updates. I have even installed the creators update before it was automaticaly installed on my pc. I indeed use two screens with different resolutions but before I updated to the creators update, this was never a problem. At the moment it does not maater on wich of the both screens I open an inlog window, the offset in position occurs on both screens. Funny enough I found out that when I log in on the accees manager forum the drag and drop function acts correct withou tis offset.
Sorry I did not see your post before today.
We are currently installing the Creators update to see if this is the cause of the issue.
One other thing you could try is to see if it is a browser issue. Can you try and use the drag/drop on a different browser than you normally use? We use Firefox and Chrome and have not had an issue as yet.
I have found out that the problem has to do with Edge. In Internet Explorer everything works perfect
Great, I'm glad you have the drag and drop working now.
We'll take a look into why this is happening with MS Edge.
Thanks again for raising this issue.
