This problem is caused by a regional setting in your computer. If you are not using an English language in regional settings this will most likely occur every time you logon to the system.
There are two kind of approach in order to solve this problem.
If you can understand English well and would like to use this instead of the number two solution then all you have to do is to open your Control Panel. Depending on your Operating System, please open an icon that states as Regional Settings or the like. Under the regional settings change the format to English (United States).
Another solution is to add/change username and a password. Since the password is case sensitive and it uses especial character I prepare a database that includes only one table with username and password. All you need is to overwrite the existing table.
To do this, open the data.mdb or db.mdb located under Data folder. If it prompts you for a password please read FAQ on how to find a password in the source code. After that look for a table that is similar to User or tbl_SM_Users. Then open the database that is included here and Copy the table and paste it to another database by overwriting the old name. Be sure to name it similar to the table name in the existing database.
After you overwrite the table please use the following information to logon to the system:
There are so many method that you can use in order to logon to the system successfully. You can actually bypass the password dialog box by commenting the line that opens the Login.frm. Another is not to use the blowfish encryption.
Whatever method you will use the above two method will give you a good guide to enter into the system.
