Yes, I know, the standard answer for this is "reinstall the software". Unfortunately, the client does not (apparently) have the media with which to reinstall (or at least they can't find it).
The password is not exactly LOST; the previous administrator of the network probably still knows the password; unfortunately, he was fired and subsequently arrested for [unspecified misdeeds] and is currently "unavailable for comment" (read, "in prison").
I know there is a procedure to reset the password for ProtectionPilot version 1.5; I found it here: http://projectdream.org/wordpress/2007/06/12/how-to-reset-your-lostforgotten-password-in-mcafee-protectionpilot-15/
Unfortunately, this older version does not use MSDE; as far as I can tell it uses a customized built-in SQL server of some sort (though it may be based on MSDE), and the "osql.exe" utility mentioned in the above page is nowhere in evidence.
So what I'm asking for is if anyone can come up with a modified version of the password reset procedure above, or some other procedure (other than reinstallation), that will work for v1.0.0.
Thanks in advance!
