Applying a Pssword Filter

I am trying to apply a password filter to my computer.
I am following the instructions in the MSDN.
What I did was use the pwdfilt.c file provided with the platform sdk
and added code to write to a log file whenever the PasswordChangeN otify
function runs and the InitializeChang eNotify runs.
Then I enabled the password complexity option in the local security
policy, copied the dll to the system32 directory and edited the
NotifyPackages registry entry to include that dll.
However, when I later restarted my PC and tried to change password, the
log file was not written.
Moreover, I decided to try something drastic such as returning FALSE in
the PasswordFilter function to disallow all passwords.
I recompiled the modified code and registered it and yet I was able to
change passwords.
It seems to me like the OS didn't even run my code.
Does anyone have any experience with this and can tell me what exactly
needs to be done?

You don't seem to have a C++ language question. You need to
ask this question on a newsgroup dedicated to your platform.
Try one of the groups with win32 or microsoft in the name.
You can find the microsoft.publi c.* groups at google.

Hi I have a form which the user can apply filters, and push a button to preview a report. I cannot use me.filter=forms!myform.filter, because some of the filtered fields are not present in the report. What I would like is to obtain the ID field from the filtered form, and show only those ID's in the report. K

I'm having trouble applying a filter to a subform. I create a String in a Module based on various selections on the form. Clicking a button on the "stand alone form" that changes the filter property string to the string from the module works fine. As soon as I put the form on the "main form" (thereby coverting it to a sub form) things no longer work. Of course the record source for the sub form is no longer a table or query, but the...

Hello, I've got a form like this: Name: _(free text input)__ Adress: _(free text input)_ City: _(free text input)_ When clicking a Apply Filter button on the form a query is started.

What I'm trying to do is add a button to my "front" page which will open a form and filter excluding the words "installed" and "na" in the field declared by my combo box.

Is it possible to set a main-form with an embedded subform to "Filter by Form", subsequently enter the desired variables in fields in BOTH the main-form and subform, and then save the resulting filter as a single query? or, do the variables entered on the main form need to be saved as its own individual query, and the variables entered on the subform saved as a separate query. I ask because I would ideally like to take a single query,...

What I am trying to do is have a combo box which allows me to filter for a certain field in a subform. I can't think how to do this and have tried with the follwoing code. Basically the field in question is : POL_Change_Allocated - This is a yes/no tick box. I want to filter for all forms where the tick hasn't been applied.

Hi - I have a form called Vendor (tied to table with same name). Each vendor_id can belong to more than one 'category'. So there's a table called Vendor_Category which contains just vendor_id and category. On the Vendor form, there's a subform called Vendor_Category. When a user is in the Vendor form and is in a record for a particular vendor_id, they use a combo_box in the Vendor_Category subform to select Vendor_Categories that can...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
