I have been using Cardbox Plus 4.1 for many years but now a lot of my users are getting Windows 7 and maintaining a way of allowing them access to use cardbox is becoming an issue. I have taken a copy of the cardboxplus directory so that I can test and plan an upgrade to Cardbox 3.
This system was not originally installed by me so and I dont actually use it so I dont know intricacies of the system.
I have lots of *.FIL files but only one of them is of any size and from what I have gathered from the users, is the only one that is actually used. I used the upgrade tool to create the *.FMT files for them. Some of them open fine but for the main one that is used I get the error: "The database file has a different password from the format file. Please enter the password of the database file". I dont know what the password is.
I am able to open the main fil file in the old cardbox plus system and I am not asked for a password.
Your DOS database is secured by a profile.
These are the steps I performed to make this work.
Take a copy of the old FIL file which I will refer to as OLD.FIL
Many thanks for your help. I find it quite amazing that software this old is still being used and has a helpful community. The earliest record there is in my database is dated 1985.
