Solved Change ini file when windows password will changed

Specs: Windows XP

I was looking for a script that will change a password in a ini file. I know the ini file is not safe when a password is saved flattened.

But here on work we have a proxy. But the password needs to change every 60 days. Only we also use FTP prog to upload/download some things we need.

Only if the windows password will be changed the FTP prog. needs manually change but is there a way to change that ini file when the windows password changed ??

Many thanks,

✔ Best Answer
If you are trying to set the ini file so it contains a Windows password then the answer is no, at least not without heavy duty low level programming. For security reasons Microsoft has made this as difficult as is practical to implement. Be aware that Windows passwords are not stored anywhere, only a hash of them. Again, this is for security reasons.
