This article explains how to reset the user password in the event it is forgotten.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This procedure is for the password to ‘execute’ CODESOFT and does not apply to passwords for individual label templates. See article for label design passwords: Password Lock Out for CODESOFT Label Design Changes – CODESOFT Problem
User is locked out and cannot open CODESOFT.
CODESOFT has the ability for a password to be created to maintain security for label alterations.
This solution resets the password to default ‘no password’ or to ‘change password’:
- Make sure CODESOFT is not running
- Navigate to C:\Programdata\Teklynx\CODESOFT xxxx > CS.ini file > navigate to the line starting with ‘W2=’ > delete the entire line and save file.
- Start CODESOFT.
- CODESOFT will prompt you for a password > use ‘CODEPASS’ as the password (case sensitive). At this point, you may leave the password changed to blank to disable password, or change the password to your liking.
