Visual Fox Pro Application Password

by jphamel In reply to Visual Fox Pro Applicatio ...

I had this problem once. In Access97, maybe it could work in foxpro too.

Here is what i did.

I created an empty database. copied it to a temp folder.
Recreated the same empty database but this one with a password.

I opened both in an Hexviewer and compared the bytes that were changed.

I reset the bytes on the one with the password to the same bytes as the one without the password and it work.

So I took the users database opened it in the hex editor and changed the bytes I changed In my test and Voil?. Database without the password.

I hope this will help.
