VBScript program to set user passwords for the users in a spreadsheet. The program uses the LDAP provider to bind to the user objects.

The program CreateUserList3.vbs can be used to create the spreadsheet with user names. The DistinguishedName of each user is specified in the first column of the spreadsheet. For each user, the password is specified in the second column. This allows the administrator to set a different password for each user, if desired. The first row of the spreadsheet is assumed to be column headings and is skipped. The program processes each row after the first until a blank entry is encountered in the first column.

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.
