Administrator and Instructor passwords may be reset in the following ways:


Use the installed 'Reset Admin Password' utility which is accessible from Start > All Programs > ADInstruments > LabTutor Server > Reset Admin Password of the computer LabTutor Server is installed on. Upon running, this utility will stop LabTutor Services and prompt the user to enter the Administrator's username (case-sensitive) into a command window. A temporary password will then be generated on screen- be sure to take note of this.  Instructor account passwords cannot be reset with this method.
