Why is there always the password displayed in the Security Check?
Because you are using the unregistered evaluation copy of TimeWatcher. If you
register the password won't be displayed any more.
During the setup TimeWatcher asks me about the update of system files.
What shall I do?
In some cases during the setup TimeWatcher finds system files which are not up
to date. In this case the Setup program asks whether you want to update these files.
Answer 'yes' to update them. After TimeWatcher has done the update it asks for a reboot of
the computer. Answer 'yes' again. After this reboot you have to start the SETUP.EXE
program a second time to continue with the installation.
Does TimeWatcher run with Windows NT / 2000 / XP?
Yes, TimeWatcher was also tested with Windows NT 4.0 / Windows 2000 and Windows
XP. Some functions of TimeWatcher are disabled in Windows NT, because they are obsolete in
these Operating systems (e.g. Forbidden Windows Function). If you use TimeWatcher with
Windows NT / 2000 it is very important to disable the Task Manager, because it could be
used by a user to terminate the TimeWatcher task.
Why doesn't the Admin computer accept the connection of a client
computer? What's wrong with my number of licenses?
If TimeWatcher is operated with its network functionality it keeps track of the
number of connected computers. If you already reached the number of computers of your
license and try to connect another Client, the Administration computer will refuse the
connection. In this case you can delete a computer from the Computer list in the Admin
Network dialog or purchase a higher number of licenses.
I just can't get a connection between the Client and the Admin
This problem can have many reasons. First of all you should check the IP
addresses and port numbers you entered in the Options Dialog. If that doesn't help you
should check your Network with the ping command (see TimeWatcher Online Help). To find out
more about how to Setup a Network go to the Network Links Page in the Internals Section of
I re-installed TimeWatcher and now an error occurs while reading the
Network Member database
The Nework Member database is protected with the password of the Admin user in
the Administration version of TimeWatcher. If the password is resetted after a re-installation,
TimeWatcher is not able to access the database anymore. To solve that problem, just set
the Admin Password in the Administration Version of TimeWatcher to the same password,
which you were using before reinstalling TimeWatcher.
