    In short, it's not possible to "reset" the Admin password, at least not in the conventional way.

    You can work around the issue by performing the following:

    The Settings/MetaData will be lost, due to being encrypted by the same password.

    Stop all ThinkAutomation services,
    (If using a SQL database, remove the database) Drop the MessageStore database,
    Delete the Serversettings.json file,
    Delete the MetaData.db file,
    Within the registry, at the following location: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\ParkerSoft\ThinkAutomation\5\Settings - delete the DBCreate flag

    Then restart ThinkAutomation Studio.
