Disabling Windows authentication

If you find that Players are having authentication problems when playing back recordings, check whether the recorded web site uses Windows authentication for its login process. Some computer systems are set up to pass-through Windows credentials without prompting for a username and password, and if you create a recording on such a computer, the username and password required for the web site will not be saved with the recording. This may result in an authentication problem when the recording is played back on a different computer.

To ensure that the Recorder always asks for a username and password for web sites protected by Windows authentication:

  1. Run the recorder under a local user account instead of a domain account.
  2. Uncheck Enable Integrated Windows Authentication on the Advanced tab of IE Internet Options settings. This option requires a restart of Internet Explorer.
