When trying to log into 2-tier and launching Application Designer or DataMover, instead of the login screen, an error message comes up.  The error message says:

"Your security options are set improperly.  Please contact your system administrator."

The login screen never comes up.  It just keeps showing this error everytime when trying to launch the PeopleSoft Application from 2-tier.  This includes Application Designer, DataMover, NVision, etc.
