Account Password Lockout when testing Shortcut

On occasions after testing of a shortcut, you may start to get errors each time you try test it.

If you have checked Remap Printers and Drives in your shortcut, this can effectively log on to the system with the account 3 times, in a domain with Active Directory Security Policy enabled, if the wrong password is used, this will cause the account to lockout.

This can also happen with stand alone computers with a Local Security Policy Enabled.

This problem will also occur if the shortcut is tested too many times with an incorrect password.

23 May 2006 - In approximately 2 weeks a release will be available that will check the password is correct on clicking the test button, and warn of this issue if the check fails.
