Multiterm Convert: Database Password Protected

When I try to convert the .mtw file from my client into an .xml file to be able to use it in Multiterm 7, at the 4th step (4/10), I get a message saying that the database is password protected.
My client say that clicking on ok should be allright but Multiterm convert can"t go on when I click Ok because the conversion was not initialised properly. Has anyone an idea of what I can do to open this 5.5 termbase in MT 7? Has anyone had the same problem?
Thanks a bunch!

Get the password from MTW file Dec 19, 2006

I'm sure this has been posted before:

1. Open the MTW file with a text editor (UltraEdit, TextPad).
2. Look for the word "super".
3. Just in the next line you should see the password that you need to convert the termbase.
