Windows Instance will not accept Initial Password
SummaryWindows Instance will not accept a manually entered Initial Password but seems to accept it when pasted into the Remote Desktop Connection credentials dialogue.

If you suspect this is happening, try highlighting the Initial Password and changing the font to something
