If there were, the security provided by setting up Accounts and Paswords would be nil.

 

There are some password crackers out there. I'm not linking to any of them. Some of them write to (modify) the file itself, and if they do, you should not use that file any more, although you can copy elements out of it to rebuild in a new file.

I am sure there are pro's & con's - however I have used password cracking software to reclaim access to a FM file - even a 5 shot demo version got me where I wanted - back into my database.

 

It also gave me a big wake-up call - so now I only distribute my application with admin access removed.

 

Since I was only told what my existing password was I actually re-entered the database in the normal manner. I had no subsequent operational problems with the file.

 

FM will tell you there is no way in if you lose your password - as the songs say "It ain't necessarily so"

 

Since I'm not sure of the legality of these password access programs you'd better find then yourself -a Google should do it
