Expired Passwords

Hi Jeff,

I have been googling around and found that way back in 2010, you attempted to solve the mystery of updating an expired password

Did you ever manage to get anywhere with this as I can't seem to notice anything specific in your DotRas documentation about it?

Unfortunately no, the basic API used by the RasDialer component won't support expired passwords (API limitation within Windows). The only way to deal with it is to dial using the user interface based RasDialDialog which won't accommodate automation.
