Password no more

7 posts in this topic

I have been using Widows XP for years now, and have just made the change to Vista. I don't care for windows mail and tried to setup Outlook 2002. I entered all the information and received mail. The next time I opened Outlook my I was told that I had to enter my password once again. I checked the account info and sure enough the password was gone. Even though I checked the save password box. Is there any way to circumvent this? I was told to pick up a copy of Autoit and that should do it for me. I searched the FAQs to no avail. Not being very, if at all, savy with scripts is there someone out there who could assist me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, CM35

I gave that link a try, but there was no information about editing a Vista registry. Needless to say I was a bit hesitant to try doing an edit for an earlier version of Widows.

Take a look at the helpfile. A script to enter a passwrod for you would be a good learning script.

WARNING - Editing the registry without sufficient knowledge of what you are doing may very well corrupt your windows installation rendering it useless!!!

The registry in vista is essentially the same as the registry in XP. RegEdit is still the default editing program which can be run simply by opening run prompt (Start > Run) and typing "regedit".

P.S. - Google is your friend... it can tell you anything. (Even the answer to life, the universe, and everything)

Thank you for the knowledge that XP and Vista, registy wise, are essentially the same animal. I have allready been to regedit to back up my registry settings. But as you stated editing the registry can be quite an ugly thing if not done exactly correct.
