Copy and paste the content of the DirectoryConfiguration.ini file that is on C:\dcdsvr and I will decrypt the password for you.

the default is ciscocisco if this does not work, try using the Administrator password for your system. Also, the login would be Directory Manager and not Administrator.

What exactly are you trying to do with DC Directory ?? it is not recommended to get into DC Directory application as all changes that need to be made can be done using CCM Admin page. There are more chances of you breaking the system than fixing it.
