    Open source C++ library to edit Windows SAM database?

    I am working on a project to edit or reset Windows password. I am planning to take advantage of Security Account Manager. This is possible? If yes, any open source library I can learn from?

    It is possible to reset password on Windows , I've had this experience before, although I'm not a developer.

    Depends on what you're trying to accomplish and which version of Windows. What is your goal?

    If windows allows this, wouldn't it will be a security hole a truck can get through?

    I don't use windows much, but doesn't the administrator can do this?. Also, if you can write such a program, wouldn't windows require that program to be run by a user with authority to change other people's password?
