Set password with maximum length for windows system programmaticaly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
      I've tested out through a TEST.exe the method "NetUserChangePassword()" for reseting password and it is taking '63' as the maximum password length for both Standalone & Domain connected systems. If the password is more than 63 then we get error as ----
       "Unable to update the password.The value provided for the new password does meet the length,complexity or history requirement of the domain (1325)"

      Can we set more than '63' as password length for Windows server as well as Standalone machines through any API programaticaly ??

     please let me know as soon as possible.
     Thank you in advance.
