- Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005
In Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, the dot that represents the first character of the password does not appear on the screen when you tap the software keyboard. Therefore, you may be unable to correctly enter the password by using the touch screen.
When you enter the second and successive characters of the password, dots are displayed to indicate that characters have been entered. However, because no dot is displayed to indicate that the first character has been entered, you may be unable to correctly enter the password.
