Check your password length
Make sure that your Windows Live password length is no more than 16 characters. This current maximum limit is clearly indicated during the initial Windows Live sign up, but may not be clear during a password change. On a password change it's possible to enter more than 16 characters, but your account won't accept anything over 16 characters. You can change your Windows Live password by visitinghttps://account.live...ePassword.aspx.(You may have to sign in to your Windows Live account before you can access this webpage.)
