An installed product application programming interface (IPAPI) is provided on the web server that is configured to associate a user ID associated with the user of the user computer with a machine ID associated with the user computer. The credentials are automatically transmitted to the web application through cookies from a browser at the user computer to the web application so the user does not have to log-in to the web application service or at their computer.
