USer manager not creating users
« on: February 11, 2017, 08:40:19 AM »
I have tried this twice now with the user manager in technician toolbox.  When run on Windows 10 x64 pro redstone, when attempting to create a user when running the tool while logged in as the built in administrator, the tool not only fails to actually create the user, but falsely reports that it succeeded in creating the user.

The program uses ADSI to work with and create the user accounts. If it says it was successful then that is because that is what ADSI reported back to the program.

I will test it, wonder if it is yet another bug in Windows 10 and ADSI not working like it should.
