    Accelerated Reader help needed

    we're using an old version of Accelerated Reader installed on an even older NT4 server... I need to run the db repair tool but it's asking for an admin password.

    From what we can make out the admin password for the db repair tool was left to the factory default but as the software is about 5 million years old no one knows where the original packaging is our documentation

    can anyone DM me the default admin password?

    I've dropped Renaissance Learning an email but heard nowt back yet

    Any help would be great!

    Have you tried 'admin'?

    Hello Karl - reading through the 'Accelerated Reader Software Manual' it states that running Accelerated Reader Management requires access at 'Administrator Access' level -

    "When you first log in to Accelerated Reader, you need to use the default password, admin."

    Hope that helps

    Michael

    thanks guys...

    I had tried admin as part of the guessing the password process, but that didnt work

    looks like its been changed from the default but no one has documented it

    looks like a reinstall.... I may be some time
