To begin working with EMu you must first log in with a username and password. You may also need to specify which version of EMu to use.
In EMu, everything! Access to every aspect of EMu (modules, fields, functionality and more) is determined by the permissions assigned to a user and / or the groups to which the user belongs. When a user logs in to EMu all of the permissions assigned to the user are assessed and the system is customised accordingly.
A username is the key to working with EMu.
The Permissions model is described in detail in the Administration section of the Help.
