Protected .mdb access database password recovery

Oops I forgot my Access database password for the Nth time!

Database passwords are so stupid and useless, because they are so easy to crack.

Supposing that you need to get the password for your Shoretel Application Server for example


NirSoft Access PassView can get it. Download it from here:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/accesspv.html

Example Output

Filename: M:\Share\Shoretel\STPSLicenseService1.0.7\ShoreTel Application License Service\Licenses.mdb
The password is:
fooBar$3663

Don't laugh, that's really the password, duh.
