What the tool will do

The Advanced Intuit Password Recovery tool, developed by Elcomsoft, was designed to allow businesses to continue to use their valuable data when documents’ passwords are lost accidentally or intentionally.  From the accountant’s standpoint, this tool is invaluable to quickly disclose what version of QuickBooks is being used.  In addition, it can be used to eliminate wasted time trying to find the password and/or contact the client to obtain the password.  It is also a useful tool when the client forgets, or the bookkeeper leaves without disclosing, the passwords on the QuickBooks files.


The tool works with Quicken versions 4 through 2005 and QuickBooks versions 4 through 2005 and limited support for Quicken 2003.  Note: for Quicken 2002 and higher QuickBooks 2004 and higher, only short passwords can be recovered, but passwords containing 4 or more characters can only be removed.


Be aware that the assumption used throughout this document is that the individual using the tool to disclose or remove the password is authorized to access the data contained in the file.
