Vista Home Premium password expiration

M
#3
Sorry, I gave you the link, but not the summary: (see link for instructions)

Maximum password age
Values for this policy setting range from 1 to 999 days.
(You can also set the value to 0 to specify that passwords never expire.)

That won't work in Home Premium. There are no Group Policy tools in that SKU.

Use this method instead:
1. Click the Start button
2. Right click Command Prompt in Accessories
3. Select "Run as administrator" and elevate
4. Inside the elevated command prompt run this command:
net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

Close the prompt. That should set the expiration to infinite.
