Enhance Windows Logon and Password Change Interface

Enabling enhances the user interface for Windows Logon Password Changes. This feature enhances (wraps) the standard Microsoft credential provider with the following features:

* When a user gets a password change rejected, details about the Specops Password Policy policies not fulfilled will be displayed (whereas the built-in Microsoft credential provider only informs that the password change was rejected without providing further details). This feature requires Specops Password Policy sentinel on all domain controllers.
* Show the 'Reset Password...' clickable link that enables users to reset forgotten passwords or locked out accounts. This feature requires Specops Password Reset.
* Automatically select the last logged on user's tile, saving the user from an extra click on the user's icon before every logon/unlock.

This setting is used by the Specops Password client. There is normally no need to define this value.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
