The error typically occurs if the browser is configured to block pop-up windows. The Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager login window is a pop-up window; disabling pop-up windows keeps the login window from being displayed.

Resolving the problem


  1. Log in

  2. Allow pop-up windows to be displayed in the same browser

  3. Click the Reload button at the end of the error message

  4. Enter your user name and password to start the tool.
