This is very unusual. I haven't ever run into anything like it before,
nor heard it mentioned on the Aurora forums or elsewhere. If I may ask,
are you running under Windows Vista or 7? That could cause issues.
Generally, Aurora needs to be run in admin mode.
I'm not sure what this password prompt is. The only passwords I've ever
seen prompted for are those for SM mode or Designer mode, the former which
you set at the beginning of a game and the latter I don't have. Would you
mind giving some more information? What are some examples of menu options
that are disabled? They shouldn't be, as far as I know the database isn't
Sorry I'm not more helpful. I admit I'm baffled.

I installed the 4.91 with no hiccups. I extracted the files from the 5.1

The 5.14 included the executable only. I copied the two files from the 5.1
update into the Aurora directory under program files, then copied the 5.14
update of the executable into that same directory. Now, when I run Aurora,
I get a password prompt immediately for the database. I can bypass with
escape, but a lot of menu options aren't available after that.
