Screenlogic won't login with new install

So I got a new computer and installed the screenlogic software on it. Tried to log in, the cursor spun for a second and stayed right there on the login screen. Thought I forgot the password (I didn't) but I'm still accessing it from my phone.

So I tried the login as administrator thing. Same problem. Must be the new machine...

Installed it on another new machine...same issue.

Pulled the actual files (login.dat and all) from my old computer, where it had been working fine and copied them onto the new machine. And...voila!

Now, the good part is that I got it working. But what the heck is going on here? Anyone seen this or have any suggestions or ideas?

I don’t know the inner workings of Screenlogic but you provide a good hack for others who have the same login problem.
