If the plugin role's Arming profiles tab is missing from Security Desk or Config Tool, then the plugin is not installed on your local machine.

To help you troubleshoot this issue, refer to the possible causes and their respective solutions in this section.
NOTE: It is a best practice to make sure that all servers and workstations being used for BuyTime are running the same version of the plugin.

Possible symptoms:
