    That's easy. You can't. MD5 encryption was designed so that you cannot decrypt it. It's a one-way hash function. If there was a way to decrypt it then it would defeat the purpose of encrypting it.

    If you are planning on using the same login information in the database for both programs then yes you would want to convert both to using the same encryption.

    in theory i guess you could....

    though it would take the worlds fastest computers like 10 years to do it...
