No

password_complexity and reversible_encryption doesnt work on Windows XP at least. Its output is

<password_complexity datatype="boolean">1</password_complexity>
<reversible_encryption datatype="boolean">0</reversible_encryption>

Doesnt matter if its enabled or disabled.

I read that a workaround was added in version 5.5 build 3 but doesnt work for me.

Thanks for your help.

  • Fixed in r886. This problem occurred when the password complexity or reversible encryption settings were set at the local level using the local group policy rather than at the domain level using AD group policy objects. The WMI query that was used to access these settings is not capable of accessing the local versions of these settings. This update now uses the secedit.exe command line utility to query these settings in the event that they are set locally rather than at the domain level.
