Passwords must meet complexity requirements regedit cmd?

Password must meet complexity requirements

I want to configure local password policy for a stand-alone computer as below:
Enforce password history: net accounts /uniquepw:XXX
Maximum password age: net accounts /maxpwage:XXX
Minimum password age: net accounts /minpwage:XXX
Minimum password length: net accounts /minpwlen:XXX

But for complexity and encryption type I didn't find a command-line solution on registry settings. How can I configure password settings listed as below:

Sorry, the Password must meet complexity requirements policy setting is not stored in the form of a registry key. But that doesn't mean you can't manipulate this setting through a command.

This article describes how one can use MMC to create a configuration file that can be interpreted by the SecEdit command. Group policies as well as registry key permissions can be set using this method.
