Usually this means that your Windows login doesn't have a password set.

Because FDS uses a "network" type login to launch the processes, it requires non-blank password.  If you normally do not have a password to log into your computer, you must set a password.  Microsoft Windows will disable network login if you have a blank password -- this keeps MPI (and therefore FDS) from launching the job.  Setting a password should resolve the issue.
