Important - Known limitations of AutoHotkey, Windows and Linux

Win/Linux :  When changing the Windows/Microsoft Live/Linux password, using another keyboard layout can INTERFERE in some cases where your keystrokes are either registered via the other layout or as standard US QWERTY.

Win (AHK) :  On the login screen, the layout script will NOT be loaded, which can result in the WRONG input !
Linux :  On the login screen, the layout might NOT be available, which can result in the WRONG input !

=> Win/Linux :  Only use “BASIC LATIN” characters (codes 32 to 126) for your Windows, Microsoft Live and Linux passwords !
Otherwise, it might be impossible to type any Unicode character higher than “Basic Latin” at the login screen/prompt (due to a different keyboard configuration) ! => ACCOUNT LOCKOUT
=> Win/Linux :  To be “better safe than sorry”, ALWAYS make your system passwords VISIBLE during modification !
