Pass recovery on PIX 520 with rawrite program

Hi all:

I wanna do a password recovery on a PIX 520, I read the document with the steps I have to follow but I dont understand how I have to use the rawrite.exe program.

I tried it from Windows Explore, from ms-dos but without exit. How is the procedure for loading the program?.



Re: Pass recovery on PIX 520 with rawrite program

Follow this procedure - you need to create boot disk.. follow step-3 but use the file bin version that pertains to your pix runnind code for pass recovery.

Place the rawrite.exe in the same folder you have the .bin pass recovery file.. use c:\ root .. makes it easier and follow the instructions when you execute rawwrite.exe

I already know what was the problem. I had the rawrite file and several .bin files in the same folder and when I execute the appliacation I got the error "Incorrect Parameter".

I move the rawrite and the a .bin file to another location and it works now.

Thank for the reply
