VBScript program to set user passwords for the users in a text list. The program uses the WinNT provider to bind to the user objects.

The program CreateUserList1.vbs can be used to create the text file with user names. The NetBIOS domain name is hard coded in the program. The user NT name is the sAMAccountName of the user, also called the pre-Windows 2000 logon name. The password is hard coded in the program, and will be the same for all users in the list.

This program should work on any 32-bit Windows client that can log onto the domain. Windows NT and Windows 98/95 clients should have DSClient installed. If DSClient is not installed, they need WSH and ADSI installed.

In order to set passwords, the client must be able to encrypt using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. This means that Internet Explorer should be upgraded to use 128-bit encryption.
