Troubleshooting

We have found that certain combinations of browser settings and add-ons designed to block advertising or cookies can disrupt the configuration and login process. If you are having issues with the installer please check or try the following:

  • A different web browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox

  • Temporarily disable or uninstall browser add-ons that may effect viewing websites (Adblock Plus, NoScript, etc)

  • Check your browser to make sure that it is set to accept cookies as they are required for the login process. (You can turn them back off later if you so choose)
