Setup.pl password doesn't work

I up upgrading to 2.5 / moving from a Linus hosted site to Windows. All going well until I got to entering my admin password - I keep getting 'setup error - login failed'. Where is it pulling the password from? I may have had settings.pl in the variables directory but I have taken that out now (admin password in there is 'admin' anyway. Can I 'hack' setup so it accpets any password / doesn't ask for one?

The login password is being pulled from Members/admin.vars. If you're using your old admin.vars, then that's the password it wants.

Also, if you're upgrading to 2.5.2, use the version found in the SVN as it has the current bug-fixes (http://yabb.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/yabb/branches/2.5.2/?view=tar)
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
