Title: Password problem
Post by: Cowboy on November 17, 2015, 11:22:38 pm
this software is installed on our stream encoder computer running windows 7. The problem is I did not install it and there is a password set on it so you can't change any of the settings without it and I do not know the password. So I thought no problem I will just delete it and reinstall it. Except there must be a file somewhere that is not getting deleted because it still asks for the password. I looked in the registry and under user app data and found nothing. Can anyone tell me how to get around this so I can change the email the alarms are sent to?

The password can be removed using following method:

Find the Silence Detector data folder.
In Windows XP this is usually C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application data\<silence detector subfolder>
In Windows 8 this is usually C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\<silence detector subfolder>

Open the file piraside.ini (for example in Notepad) located in the folder above.

In section [General] find a line starting with SetupPassword= and delete entire this line.

Save the file. If you are unable to save the file, remove its Read only attribute first.
