    ========

    If you forgot the password that was set up at installation you can retrieve the password by accessing the path below:

     

    1. C:\Program Files\Wavelink\AvalancheMC\lib\AvalancheSupport.jar

    2. Unzip the AvalancheSupport.jar file and open the dao-factory.xml file.

    3. Look for the property value for the password entry.

     

    e.g. < property value = "Admin123" name = "password"/> like below:
