Windows 7: Cannot make a new Windows 7 user account (password problem)

Cannot make a new Windows 7 user account (password problem)

i can't finish the setup process. i'm trying to create a "standard" account, but when i go to create a password for it, no matter how many characters and no matter how complex (uppercase, lowercase, numbers, etc) it will absolutely not accept anything as a password (and i am copying/pasting the password from notepad, so it is being typed correctly).

i checked all the secpol 'password policies', and there don't seem to be any interfering requirements.

i attached a screenshot, if it helps.

What error are you getting? What exact problem do you have? What do you mean by "it will absolutely not accept anything as a password"?
