Hi guys, 

This is my first post here, i am from England and am the system admin for our IT & Other Tech Systems for our family business. We have an NEC SV8100 phone system, it was installed and setup by an external company, we used to have a maintenance package with them but decided to cancel it last year because they still charged for site vists on top of the subscription, the system was installed about 4 years ago.

Last month i updated the user password that they had originally given to us to be something more memorable for me; however today i tried to access via WebPro to make some changes to an extention name but i could not log in, with the error message Invalid Username / Password - obviously i have not written down the new password properly or the one i set was not set as i thought (WebPro is funny sometimes using Chrome with text fields). I phoned the external company to see if they had a record of any Administrator / Manufacturing accounts, however they have now told me that the Standard NEC Admin / Manufacturing accounts would have been removed when they set the system up, and that they removed their own Admin Accounts from the system when we cancelled the Maintenance Contract with them (which they did not inform us they would be doing), effectively leaving us with no failsafe in my current scenario. 

Is there any way to recover the passwords or restore the manufacture / tech accounts? I have tried EVERY type of default account i could find on google, none seem to work. The company sent me the last backup of the system, a .pcp file, however i can't seem to open it as i cannot find V10 of PCPro anywhere online. the only option they have offered me is to re-instate the maintenance contract and get them to restore the system from the last backup (about 6 months old).

Is there anything that can be done? Conventional methods or not? Also would anyone be able to point me in the direction of PcPro V10?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While I have access to all of my PBX's, I'm curious about this process.  As well as the mentioned Speaker #*#* process.  I have support through NEC currently, but every once in a while I end up in a situation and end up crying on the forums.  This is sort of a preventative maintenance thing.  And R4--thanks for the forum!  I'm also on the other 2 NEC forum sites with this same user name.
