Are you trying to get write access to the mapped drive on the server to
update the software? Or Vantage access to run the schema update?

NT passwords can be easily cracked, write me if interested. Sounds like
#2, though. You can run report builder against UserFile and look for
anyone with SecurityMgr flagged to try cracking. Spouse's and kid's names
are good password guesses ;) Or if you have ODBC installed, just go and
write into the same field to make yourself a manager.

We have attempted to update/patch version 4.00.811 today. It is telling
us we need to be Security Manager to complete this patch? We never
needed this with 3.0 - is this correct?

My problem being - I do not have security manager priv. and we have
attempted to do the patch. Only the owner of the company has security
manager priv. and his is on a plane of the country?

Any ideas???

Not the kinda of thing I wanted to do on Friday afternoon. :):)
TIA.
