When you change your password while you log on to Windows, you may not authenticate successfully with a third-party network provider. For example, a user logs on to Windows and Citrix MetaFrame with a new password, the Windows password is successful, but the Citrix MetaFrame password is not successful.
This problem occurs because Windows sends the old password to the third-party network provider when you change your password while you log on to Windows.
