If you can access the xml data file. Open it up with an editor or viewer (IE, Firefox, LFViewer) and look for the following line.

<sys-name>username to find</sys-name>

e.g. <sys-name>admin</sys-name>

You should then find the below info. listed.
The password line should then contain the password that was set.

Hope that helps.

Cleartext? Really? Here's a change I'd like to see in the next version. Encrypt that please.
