    This sounds very questionable.

    If you don't have the password or the owner of the file will not or cannot provide the password, then you are out of luck.

    You must have downloaded a file which cannot be downloaded without owner's permission or some file who has paid download. So there is nothing we can do for it. Always go for free downloads.

    Yes it might have different cases. I had got file that do not work even if the format to run it is available in the system, but runs in my car system or my laptop. Secondly, there might be a price on it, or even there might be a policy or some thing written in the terms and condition for the website. Have a check on it maybe it could help out.

    I think this says enough. If the owner doesn't give you the password, you're out of luck.
