    Default Picture Password not working in windows 8 RP

    Hi all,

    When I installed Windows 8 Release Preview I setup a Picture Password. For some reason, now when I login I am not presented with the opportunity to login with a picture. I can only login with my password. If I go into PC settings under "Sign-in options" the "Create a picture password" button is greyed out, so I can't bring it back.

    I had done in the Consumer Preview, no such issue.

    Anyone have a solution so that I can get the Picture Password working again?

    In my case it did not work in CP and is working in RP. I suspect you will need to reinstall. Perhaps a Refresh will work for you. Be advised if you do a Reset, you will have to reinstall apps, so a complete reinstall would be better.

    Be sure to do a Refresh, not a Reset

    Are you logged on with a domain account?
    I am on a domain and do not get the options for Pin Password or Picture Password when logged into the domain.

    Vernon, Welcome to the Forum!

    Hopefully, the above suggestions will help. If not, there's a slim chance that some of the things that worked on CP may not on RP. In my case, my built in wi-fi card that worked perfectly fine on CP, didn't on RP. Even after multiple clean installs, it still doesn't.

    The only reason that this doesn't concern me, is that my OEM supplied wi-fi card is of the "G" type, I have a couple of "N-150" USB wi-fi cards that works twice as good. "G" type wi-fi cards are old school ones, "N" has been the gold standard for years.

    I hope that a clean install will fix the issue, but if not, this is something to keep in mind. Too, Win 8 RP is constantly being updated, & your issue may be fixed at any given time.

    Best of Luck,
    Cat
