Just found this and felt that I should yet you all know...

Dumps all passwords from the Terminals project here on codeplex. It reads terminals.config and displays all passwords (even the ones protected by a "masterpassword").

I just tested it and it does in fact work.

Nice little utility to recover your passwords if you have forgotten your master password.

If someone gets ahold of your config file, they can dump all passwords.

Feel free to post your thoughts on the issue here.

Tried, but doesn't work for me. Also the decryption algorithm seems to be invalid.
Anyway in next version the encryption algorithm security is increased.

Have a look at related work item:

At iqbalsajid: If you forgot your master password, there is no way back. The only option is to use hard attack against the master password using rainbow dictionary (simply try to hack the master password).

And the second option you already tried. It is the passwords dump, which doesn't have to work on current version.

Thanks jirkapok,

the discussions you mentioned are not related to my problem. 

I uninstalled Terminals and then reinstalled, but it is asking me the password that means it is saved somewhare in registry. i tried to search for that but was not successful.

finally i uninstalled Terminals and searched for alternate product i found mRemoteNG it very good for me.

If you want to reset previous settings after reinstall remove Terminals.config in install directory.

thanks again. have a good day.

I am having same issue. I remove Terminals.config in install directory, delete everything, then reinstall, and it asks for "Terminals Password". Doesn't anyone know what regkey to delete? Or other file? WTF !!! This should not be this hard !!!

Ok, I finally figured this out. the Terminals.config file you want to remove is NOT in the install directory as stated by @jirkapok, it is actually in "C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Local\Robert_Chartier\Terminals\Data"

It would be really nice, and save all of us a lot of time being frustrated, if people that post solutions to problems would take the time to make sure their suggestions are actually helpful!!!

What i understood, jirkapok mentioned older solution.
Both apply, depending on installation type described in upgrade to v3.0:
