The new version of LsaSecretsView from nirsoft allows you to extract the LSA secrets from an external instance of Windows operating system. This feature can be useful if you have a dead system that cannot boot anymore.
You can use this feature from the user-interface, by using the ‘Advanced Options’ in the File
menu, or from command-line, by using the /external parameter.
This feature was also added to LSASecretsDump, which is the console version of LsaSecretsView.
Be aware the currently this feature works for Windows 2000/XP/2003, but not for Windows Vista.
