Assistance with MPLAB-IPE Integrated Programming Environment

I'm an administrator on a small development project. Among many other things I am also responsible for flashing firmware into PIC16F886 chips we are using in our system controller devices. I use a PICkit-3 for this process, and drive it through my Ubuntu machine using MPLAB-IPE.

I've returned to the firmware loading portion of my development process after several months of attending to various other things, having then programmed enough PICs for my needs from that time until now.
 
It appears I have forgotten/misplaced the "Advanced Mode" password I used those months ago.

Does anyone know how to reset this password? Is there an .rc file I can delete or edit?

    The password  is "Microchip" by default. Use the latest version which is MPLABX IPE 1.80.

    I changed the password months ago and the new one is lost. I am looking for how to reset the password. The default is easily found in many places, but this will not solve my problem unfortunately.

    If you can delete the "ipe.key" file from user home directory, your password will be reset to default.
    Please note: You will loose the settings(configurations made to IPE) if you delete the password file.

    Hello!

    I found the ipe.key file and deleted it. But MPLAB IPE does not make the default password "Microchip". What else can I do to reset my password? Why block the programmer settings with a password ??? !!!

    The tool is plainly aimed to be used by unskilled production staff, so it's to stop them fiddling with the important settings...
     

    Nearly there...

    Note that the default password is "microchip" - NO capital "M" as previously suggested.

    Found a solution. It is necessary to disconnect the programmer from the computer!
