    What admin password have you asked for? Generally, open FoxPRO and locate the programs or if there is an .EXE file, then double click to open it. Yes, if there any login screen before invoking the main menu that is an another issue. However, more details are required.

    Yes, the database encoded with another words, likely machine language. No way, better contact the actual programmer and ask the same. Other possible ways are all illegal.

    @Durairaja: Unfortunately we can authenticate the protected file is yours. Giving information on how to breach security measures in unethical. IF we told you how to do it then nobody's files would be safe. You may want to take it to a professional recovery service.

    @Durairaja: You can always have him export the database into an Excel or CSV file for you to use to load your own database for the Visual Basic project. Check out this link on a Microsoft forum on how to to it.
