Passware Kit .NET SDK is licensed per developer. An additional license of Passware Kit Forensic is required for each computer running the software that uses the SDK.


  • Microsoft Windows Vista, Server 2003/2008/2012, or Windows 7/8.x/10 (32-bit or 64-bit) installed and configured on your system

Passware software supports PC platforms only. However, it can recover passwords for some files created on Macintosh such as FileMaker. You can run Passware products on a Virtual PC or Parallels Desktop to unprotect your files.

For Windows Key, a Windows Setup CD (32-bit or 64-bit) is required, as well as a burning CD-RW drive in order to record a password reset CD instead of the USB disk.

To acquire a physical memory image of the target computer using Passware FireWire Memory Imager (used to recover BitLocker, TrueCrypt, PGP, MS Office encryption keys, Windows and Mac user passwords, and website logins), a FireWire cable is required. Both the target computer and the computer used for acquisition should have FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports. A USB flash drive for Passware FireWire Memory Imager should be 8 GB or more.
