How to get password (decrypted)

I need to see what password WinSCP v2.3.0 is sending to a server, but winscp.ini contains only a hexadecimal string encoded from the password. Is there any way of doing this short of recompiling the source code exposing the functions in Security.cpp? Thanks!

No other way :-(

Okay. Thanks! BTW, what compiler did you use? Is there a premade makefile? Thanks for all the help! (Actually the reason I need to see the password is because I forgot, and WinSCP remembered...)
