    Question Unanswered: Lost password to SQL Anywhere db file

    Nope, that's the problem
    I'm drawing a total blank on this - stupid me. Cannot connect to it at all. I had a PowerBuilder application built on the top of that database, and was hoping that I coded some id/password in there, but ...
    I was wondering is there a way to "hack" in? Or like a password cracking tool?
