Need to find the username/password for a DB, or perhaps a default username created in every DB?

This is a followup to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Contact_Management/ACT/Q_22981326.html. I am trying to restore the backups, but it is failing. I created a new DB, andf when trying to import the data, I cannot get past the Username/PSW prompt. Customer isnt aware of a username ever created for him, but I assume Act always has a username for each user, even when they are autologged on. I know there are extraction utils out there, but I have already installed the 2005 version on the machine, as the machine stopped seeing the old one. I have the .zip file from the restore, and all of the other supporting files along with the .dbf, and can see data in there, but I would like to see if the import will be a success, once I get the credentials to bypass the wizard....

Any questions, please ask.

Yea, I saw that one....Need to get onto the machine and see if it can detect any remnants in the registry for the app....

Do you know if 4.0 used the registry for these creds?

Sees the username, but it still prompts for Bad Login or PSW, when trying to import the data...

Any other freeware apps out there?
