Install/File Connect Password

When attempting to install AccountEdge or start FileConnect, you will be prompted for one of your Mac's administrator usernames and the corresponding password. These are not the same usernames and passwords as your AccountEdge NE usernames and passwords. This is the password for the Mac OS administrator account.
