Hello all, I have been given the task of reading some data out of a set of ADT/ADI files that belong to a third party software whose developer is no longer in business. I have downloaded the OLEDB driver, but it is requiring a username/password to connect. Unfortunately, that info is abstracted from the application users, and I don't know if it is really necessary or if I have configured it incorrectly.

Thanks very much!

can you find a file with the .ADD extension in the database folder? If so, username/password is required (and we can't assist you getting it), if not, just connect to the folder without any username/password. You could also try if ADSSYS with empty password (that's default) gets you access to the database.
