Accelerator Multiple Instance Auto-Login

The following information is useful on PC's whereby the Accelerator auto-login is unable to save account name and/or user name, and/or password credentials to the registry.  Such a scenario might occur on workstations subject to a group policy or limited local workstation rights. This procedure may also be used to run more then one instance (ignoreprev switch) of the Accelerator Phone Book and Calendar for the purpose of logging into more then one Accelerator account simultaneously. 

This procedure stores your Accelerator login values in 'plain text' format within the application shortcut and should not be considered a secure method for storing Accelerator login credentials.
