Manage Users option is accessed via NI VeriStand Project Explorer. By default, starting NI VeriStand 2019 the Project Explorer runs in the background and is visible to the User.

Follow the steps mentioned below to access the Project Explorer:

1) Open Any NI VeriStand Project from the Getting started window.

2) Once the Project is open, click on File>>Preferences:

3) In the Preferences Dialog box, ensure that Show Legacy Project Window is checked:

4) NI VeriStand Project Explorer will now be visible.

You can then click on Tools>>Manage Users to add/remove Users.
