Reasons you can receive this error

This error occurs when the username and password being used to connect to the hosted environment match a login used for Rightworks, but something else is preventing the connection.

  • You don't have a package assigned to you.
    • This can also happen when local workstations are shared and a username and password has been saved in the shortcut to access the hosted environment for a user who no longer has a package assigned to them.
  • Your Intuit Hosting service is not active.
  • You are connecting to a different computer name than the one assigned.
  • You haven't logged into the hosted environment for a long time so your login is inactive.

  1. Sign in to the Rightworks AppHub.
  2. Select the Admin Console.
  3. Go to the Users tab.
  4. Locate the Assigned Package column.
  5. Any users that have None in this column will need a package assigned to them before they can access the hosted environment.
