This error can be caused by one of the following reasons:
  1. In The Raiser's Edge, login as Supervisor
  2. Go to Admin > Security > Users
  3. Right click on Users > select New User and create a new user and password, for example:
    • User Name: NEW_REAPI
    • Password: Password1 (this is just an example, please use a strong password)
  4. Click Save & Close
  5. At this point you can optionally add this user account to the Admin user group in RE if needed.
  6. In the code, change the INIT statement to use the new user account created in step #3 (ex: oREAPI2.Init("WRE11111", "NEW_REAPI", "Password1", 2) )
  7. Logout from The Raiser's Edge and test the custom API application
