Enterprise Manager PassView v1.00
Copyright (c) 2002 - 2006 Nir Sofer


Enterprise Manager is a graphical tool that allows you to easily configure and manage your SQL Server. If you connect your SQL Server by using the SQL Server authentication, and you don't select the "Always prompt for login name and password" option, the password and the user-name are stored on your Registry.

This utility enumerates all servers registered in your Enterprise Manager, and reveals the user-names and the passwords, if they are stored on your computer. It supports the Enterprise Manager of SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000.

Known Limitations

  • This utility can show the Enterprise Manager passwords of the current logged-on user. It cannot show the passwords of other users.
  • The password of your SQL-Server can be revealed only if you use the SQL Server authentication, and the "Always prompt for login name and password" is not checked.

Using Enterprise Manager PassView

This utility is a standalone executable, and it doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to use it, extract the executable file (empv.exe) to any folder your want, and run it.

After you run this utility, you'll get a window with 6 columns containing information about your SQL Servers. All registered servers are listed in this window, but the user-name and passwords are shown only if they're stored in the Registry.
You can also save the servers list into a text file, by selecting the "Save To Text File" from the File menu.
