Manual Reset -Windows

If you are still unable to reset your application database, you can manually reset it by following these steps:

C:> Users>Your Username> AppData> Roaming> FundySoftware

Rename the FundySoftware folder to something like "FundySoftwareOLD" or "FundySoftware2" and relaunch the program.

If you can't find your AppData folder, chances are it's hidden. Here's how to view hidden files.

Open Windows explorer by pressing the keyboard shortcut 'Win+E'.

In the Windows explorer, click the Organize tab on the toolbar and then click on Folder and search options.

In the folder options window, go to View tab and check the option Show hidden files, folders and drives under Advanced Settings. Click OK.

That's it and you'll easily recognize the hidden folder AppData because it's slightly faded.

You will be asked to accept the license agreement and Log-in again (now that your preferences have been reset) with your email and password.
