sitting here trying to figure how to make the program i just wrote to generate a new password every time it starts. the idea is that i will be able to get the new generated pass from a file somewhere.

1.how do i get the program to generate a pass new pass every time it runs? i know i could probably use a number generator but i also want other chars.
2. how do i get the program to store the new pass in a file.

i'm really new on this so save the flames to someone how needs them.

Why not just make a random password generator? I had neo write me one once, you could specify the character sets (english characters, extended characters, etc) for however long you needed it (could generate a random 150 character password if i wanted to).

Use Visual Basic 6.0. Copy the code straight into a new project all by itself. It works without error.

If whatever you're using (which can't be VB6.0) doesn't like my integer divide operator, then use this instead:

change this:

Password = Password & Mid(Chars, ((Rnd() * (Len(Chars) - 1)) \ 1) + 1, 1)

to this:

Password = Password & Mid(Chars, Int(Rnd() * (Len(Chars) - 1)) + 1, 1)

Use your first ida. Best one.


If you think you know something completely, you probably don't know enough.
