I tried to install microsoft online services sign-in assistant 32-bit and microsoft online services module for windows powershell 32 bit on Windows vista PC. But I received error message that operating system not supported. All my Office 365 password are expiring after 90 days. This sucks, as I have many e-mail only users and they are not aware and do not want to reset password every 90 days and we do not really use windows7 in our environment. Is there anyway to set passwords to never expire on P1 plan and enterprise plans without having Windows 7 to do this?
You may try to recheck if you have the newest version of .NET Framework installed for your Windows Vista.
Please try to check this link.
Also please make sure you have already met following prerequisites for running Powershell for administering the Office 365 services.
Windows Remote Management 2.0 (WinRm)
The Service Connector
Why does the link you provided: HOW to configure user passwords to never expire in Office 365 show that many operating systems are supported? And why do you assume that these are my customer's paswords that have expired. Who said any thing about customer's passwords. I am administrator of my Office 365 accounts. But, it is true that It is unfortunate that it is not documented that I need to have Windows 7 to manage my passwords for Office 365 accounts.
PS. Evan, do you know when and if for sure this basic functionality will be built into Office 365?
In the IT world it is common to refer to those who you look after as your customers, and just like in a store if your work with the idea the customer is always right, everyone gets along better.
Hope this helps
Thanks for Robert's response on this issue.
I think there was an update with the wiki article but some of the information was not updated. According to your situation, I suggest you change the default expire policy in a Windows 7 PC, and I'd appreciate if you can submit a feedback with this issue.
I'd apologize for my misunderstanding that your customer's password had expired. For the time being, we can change or reset our users' password in Office 365 Portal, also we can change or reset our self passwords in Office 365 Portal. If you refer to the password expire policy, then we can change it using PowerShell as we discussed above.
To change or reset passwords in Office 365, please refer to Sign-in and passwords in Office 365.
I'm writing to follow up my previous reply. Did my above information help you?
