Locked out of Micros Pos e7 Configurator

This is a simple step procedure on what to do if your locked out of your configurator on your Micros Pos e7 system. Step 1: Make sure you have your E7 software running on your PC and go to C:/local disk/program files/ Micros/e7/config folder and open your e7config.txt Step 2: look for the UWSObjectNumber and change the definition to 6 and exit and save. Step 3: Reboot your e7 software and it will boot into Configurator in "super user" mode. Click OK for all notifications and navigate to Employees category. Select the account that has been locked by the system and uncheck the box for account disabled and reset your password. Step 4: re-open your e7config.txt located in C:/local disk/program files/micros/e7/config/ and change the UWSObjectNumber back to 0 and exit and save. Now reboot your e7 software and now you can login to Configurator with your User ID and password no problem.


  1. Once I change the value to 6 on the text file and end the task for e7, the computer won't let me re-open e7. It just keeps giving me the "another user is already running e7" message over and over again no matter how many times and ways I try to open e7. How do I get around that? I tried restarting the entire computer and e7 will open but not in configurator mode. It opens in regluar mode but with a different color scheme.

    1. Once you've closed your E7 what you need to do ist got to your Task Manager and go to processes, once there looke for the background running E7 and close it and then reboot your Micros Program and you should be good

  2. Any idea how to do this on Micros E7 version 4.4/Windows 10? Thanks!

  3. Configurator Access Denied micros e7 we have tried the options you have provided on the Video but it doesnt work for us. We are using e7 version 4.2 with Operating system of Windows 7
