  • As the error suggests the password you've chosen isn't complex enough to meet the default complexity requirements. You can see full details of what those are here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh994562.aspx but essentially you need to include at least three of the following five types of character :

      • Uppercase letters of European languages (A through Z, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
      • Lowercase letters of European languages (a through z, sharp-s, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
      • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
      • Non-alphanumeric characters (special characters) (for example, !, $, #, %)
      • Any Unicode character that is categorized as an alphabetic character but is not uppercase or lowercase. This includes Unicode characters from Asian languages

    There are other things that can preclude a password as the article above explains. One set and logged into Windows you can go into the password settings for the user and disable the requirement to meet complexity requirements if you really wanted to, but personally I wouldn't.
