Day One Noob Questions about Initial Setup

I'm trying to do a basic install of HIP to test some issues a Client is reporting while both HIP and my software is installed that does not occur when either is installed alone.

I downloaded and installed the Orchestrator 4.0 Client and HIP 7.0 IR5 Client to a PC as Trial Software.

When I run McAfeeFire to try and configure some basic settings, the GUI will not unlock w/o a password.

Considering that there has not been any cofiguration of anything other than downloading the Orchestrator Client and the HIP 7.0 Client, is there a way to unluck and configure HIP?

Do I need to Download and install some type of Mgmt Server?  Would I then need to do something to reconfigure the Install Agent to point to that server?

Sorry for the really basic questions.

The default password to unlock the Client UI is 'abcde12345' as documented in the HIPS 7.0 product documentation.
