This script is asking for a password ( not the database password !!! ) en

key ( thus overriding the start up script ), even using the admin
passwords.. the application still starts automatic, and therefore locks me
The only possibility is using an exit point in the software...but this is

I don't think you'll get a lot of help here if this is the case...

This isn't the right way to do it....
But... what if the author is the software is neglecting his dutys, and
selling his software without proper support etc...
All legal actions so far, run out of options....
Besides buying a complete new applicatie, this is the only solution...

Or does stuff built using FM Developer doesn't allow the use of the shift key option?

It appears that Theo knows how to successfully use the Shift key to
enter the master password.
The issue is that the developer of the commercial solution runs a
startup script (prompting for a data-based password) that is still
running and prohibits full access.
Theo, have you asked the application developer for access to the solution?

I asked the developer for a working application, but he's refusing any
cooperation. Because the end-user of the software "a good relation of me"
has payed the full price for this non-working solution, ik feel i have the
right to crack this applycation.
So if anyone has a solution, or can give serious hints, please reply...

does not give you, or your relation, the right to crack the application.
Software licensing does NOT include access to code, unless so stated.
Most developers who sell open source software charge a much higher fee
for the master password, and have very stringent licensing terms so that
someone cannot re-sell a modified solution.
You get to use the software (actually, the person who paid for it does),
not crack or reverse engineer. Your feelings have no legal standing,
and I don't blame the application designer for refusing to help you
pirate his software.
Now, if you'd gone to him politely and asked for either a bug-free copy
or (paid) assistance with customizing the solution to your needs, you
might have gotten a different answer. Demanding access for retail
pricing isn't going to get you anywhere.
It always seems so ironic that those who cannot create on their own are
so resentful and dismissive of the rights of creative people to own,
protect and profit from the products of their creativity. :/
