i found this thread but i dont know who the master account is and i need to change the path for my contact databases

If you're using GoldMine dBase (as per your post) there are no paths to set in the BDE.

At the point you describe above, right-click | Properties, and edit as needed.

GoldMine tracks 4 paths:

.exe path -- just as it implies, the location of the exe

System files -- normally the same as the .exe, though it doesn't have to be. This is where your ini files, licesne.dbf, and a few other "central" system-related files are stored

GoldMine files -- normally a \gmbase subfolder underneath your System files

Contact files -- \common underneath your system files (Common is the default -- it could also be your company name, i.e. \xyzabc)

To see all of these see Help | About | System.

To set these paths, logon with master rights and go to Edit | Preferences | Login

You can also set these paths manually in the gm.ini file, which should be in the same path as the gmw6.exe file.

The default master account in GoldMine is "master" password: "access"

If you are the admin, you should delete this account (or change the default password) as a security "best practice."
