If you have a locked file, you may have done so accidentally
or someone tried to get into your account without your knowledge. We
do not maintain your password as it is unique to you and your studio.

In order for us to unlock the file, you need:

1. Your current data file - SuccessWare.4dd
2. The exact version of SuccessWare you are running. 
3. Supported clients who have a locked file will be unlocked free of
charge. If you are supported, and are on an older version, we may
recommend upgrading your version.

Note: If your version is unsupported, we may not be able to unlock the
file without you upgrading to the current version. If that is the
case, we will notify you and you may decide how you wish to proceed.
If you are an unsupported client, a $25.00 service fee will be
charged. With your approval we will unlock the account
