"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks for your advice and Troubleshooting link, I have tried all the steps but still the same menu i am getting, I am unable to resolve this issue, screenshot attached.

I also tired of below steps, which could be helpful to others


Forgotten/lost your AppCenter password for your Motorola device? First, try "symbol" as a password - this is the default for AppCenter - it might save you a little time!

If "symbol" doesn't work, dock your device to your PC using Microsoft ActiveSync and click the "Explore" button to browse the files on the device.
Navigate to the "\Application" folder and locate the "AppCenter.reg" file. Copy this file to your machine and open with notepad. If this file does not exist on your device, you will need to copy all the registry files onto your machine, then open each file in turn in notepad and look for the following entry;
Beneath this registry entry there will be two GUIDs.They will look something like this;
Remove these two entries from your registry file and save it.
Copy the registry file back to the device in the "\Application" folder.
Cold boot the device. (Usually press and hold the 1 & 9 keys then press the power button.)
The device should now boot and the default password of "symbol" should now be active
Please attach the AppCenter.reg you used?

Warning: if the user files are encrypted, this method will break encryption and the files will be inaccessible.

Otherwise, Windows passwords are extremely easy to break thanks to offline tools such as this nifty, no-frills, bootable Linux command line program called Chntpw that rewrites the SAM registry (used to store Windows password hashes, etc.).

Use Chntpw to erase the admin password. Login with no password.

# Expert Comment - please find the attachment.
No attachment found. Also please ignore above solution with chntpw, it doesn't apply to you and you may even unnecessarily break stuff.

My apologies. @Kimputer is correct. My solution above can be ignored as it was for Desktop Windows OS, not Windows CE.
