If password caching is enabled, Windows caches passwords in the pass-
word list file when you connect to a password-protected network resource.
You can use Password List Editor (Pwledit.exe) to view the resources
listed in a user's password list (.pwl) file. You cannot view the actual
passwords, but you can remove specific password entries if you encounter
problems using a cached password.
Password List Editor works only if the password list file is unlocked
(that is, the user must be logged on). You can view only the contents of
the logged-on user's password list file, so you should run Password List
Editor on the user's computer.
To install Password List Editor, follow these steps:
- In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
- On the Windows Setup tab, click Have Disk.
- In the Copy Manufacturer's Files From box, type the appropriate
line, and then click OK:
where <cd-rom drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive containing
the Windows 98 CD-ROM.
where <cd-rom drive> is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive
containing the Windows 95 CD-ROM.
NOTE: If you have the floppy disk version of Windows 95, you can
