I have a FIX issue banner at the top and when I click on it I am ask if this program can make changes to the system. I ok that the error message pops up that you see in the screenshot.

Security Reminder (5.2 KB)

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
