Windows 6.5 Lock Password - Registry Location?

I was wondering if anyone knew where location in the registry is for the windows 4-digit password you set for the lock screen. Reason I ask is that I wanted to change the settings from 4-digit to 1-digit lock code. I like how the 6.5 Lock Screen works with the password, but I think just having a single digit like a '0' would make it a lot easier/quicker to use.

Thanks.

Thanks for that reply.

However, I already went through all that when I was going through the registry on my own. I went through it again with the information from your link. When I input a single digit, it still gives me the prompt saying that I need to set a 4-digit code and won't accept my single digit code.

Are you connected with an exchange server (from work) that enforces a certain number of digits?

Noo, I'm a college student. So I have no connection to a Exchange server. All personal use.

Re: Windows 6.5 Lock Password - Registry Location?

Have you tried using a program called csdevctrl? It allows the phone to automatically lock when pressing the power button, without the need to input any passcode. it also has a boatload of other options, like locking the phone while on a call, and unlocking it when the keyboard is slid or the stylus is removed/
