When using the Identity Finder client GUI to schedule the application to run on a periodic basis, Identity Finder sets it schedules via the Windows Task Scheduler. You will be prompted for your Windows user name and password as the Windows Task Scheduler requires local or domain user credentials to schedule a task. This user name and password are not specific to Identity Finder, rather they are the user name and password that you use to log into Windows.
For home users, this user name and password would most likely be the user name and password that you set up when you first configured your Windows operating system installation. It is possible, and many of our home users experience this, that you do not have a password configured. If there is no password configured, then you will not be able to schedule a task. If you would like to configure a password for your user account so that you may schedule a task, please refer to the Microsoft documentation on creating and changing user passwords:
