    Look at the wiiflow.ini that is on the hard drive/sd card.

    The PIN should be in there.

    I haven't used wiiflow in some time but look on your hard drive or sd card.

    Should be in

    SD :\wiiflow or SD :\apps\wiiflow\ OR USB:\wiiflow or USB:\apps\wiiflow\

    Should be a text file called wiiflow.ini

    Just use notepad or wordpad to open it in windows.
    It's all the settings that you use in wiiflow.They are stored in this file so the next time you load wiiflow all your settings/configurations remain the same.

    I know this is late but I went through this as well and just thought I would add to this incase anyone else ends up here. Icebrg5 is right^, you go to apps/wiiflow and find the wiiflow.ini file, or just search your sd card for it. Once you find wiiflow.ini , open it in note/word pad (whichever) and you will see a HUGE random text code. To save yourself an hour or two just search for "Pin" or "Parent" and you should find the 4 digit code very quickly.Change this code to whatever you like for ex:1111 to ex:2222

    Just an fyi if you set your pin on your gc controller as buttons for ex: AAAA, then the pin in the wiiflow.ini text will appear in number format instead of AAAA it would be somthing like 6666, so be prepared to see numbers instead of letters when your searching to change it.
