FM Password retrieval on a single computer
Operating system version
Description of the issue
At some point I encountered problems entering databases I created and used only on my computer. I could never figure out what the password had been set to, as my computer admin. password didn't work. I've basically stopped using FM because of this problem. I am retired and no longer use FM as I did before as my personal database I kept on my home computer to track projects, etc.
Recently I started a new database and thought I set it up so it would not require a password to re-enter. Just to be careful, I did what I wanted with the database and never closed FM or the file for several months. Then I had to do some updates and had to close the file and FM. Alas, I'm back to needing to figure out how FM sets up a password on any file without asking me.
This is a very simple problem. I still have FM Pro 8, 9, and 11 on my computer.
