    Default How to recover lost AutoCAD DVB password manually

    I have an old AutoCAD DVB file which is protected with the password and I forgot the password of that file . Does anybody knows the manual method to recover the .dvb file password.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I do not know of any way to recover the password, but I do know how to remove (or reset) the password.


    First, make a backup copy of the original .dvb file.

    Next, open the *.dvb file using a hex editor, then look for the tag “DPB=”, replace that with “DPx=”, and save it.

    After you load the modified project, you will need to click through all of the error messages... Then open the project properties, set a new password (that you can remember?), and then you can remove the password protection completely (if you want).


    Cheers

    It did not work for me.

    I successfully reset my password using this vbapasswordrecovery.net/autocad-dvb third party tool.

    You forgot to change the password via properties.
