      Summary

      Need default Admin uid and pwd or another option to access FileMaker Pro file

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      5.5

      Operating system version

      Windows 2003 server

      Description of the issue

      Hello out there,

      I am the new Systems Admin. for a small school and have a problem accessing the app. You see, the old Admin. didn't provide the FileMaker Pro Admin. uid and pwd when he left. In fact, he didn't turnover much of anything! What a deal, huh?

      To make matters worse, I am new to this software and am learning the basics right now through the tutorials. So, ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated as I need to create a new school year file ASAP.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I got on the server and located last years .fp5 file to view it and get an idea on the layout for the creation. However, it requires a password. I checked with the the admin. person that uses a certain uid to access FMPro and she does not know the original Admin. uid and pwd. Only the one she uses.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Dialogue box requiring a password.

      Configuration information

      Windows 2003 Server R2
