I used Stellar to recover my Quickbooks data file. I followed all the required steps. But when I try to open the new recovered QBW file to view my data , I enter my password but it says wrong password.
I tried to open new company file with new password but still gives me the same message , I tried opening new company file even without creating password and also same message.
