I'm trying to update the bios of a test machine (HP Comqaq Elite 8300 USDT) using SSM but it doesn't update, I receive an error in the log file:
HP Compaq Business Desktop System BIOS (K01 BIOS) for Windows (SP61923.CVA): Problem encountered when launching the install command. Command line was (cmd.exe /c ""hpqflash\hpqflash.exe" -s -p"C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\SSM86EC.tmp\PWD9E33.tmp"") which returned (Assuming Failure (Return code = 0x103))
I've tried it with a few versions of the BIOS Softpaq.
Has anyone solved this problem before?

I reran the SSM setup and made a new password file named "newpassword.bin" and then selected that (which I believe gets embedded in ssm.bin). Even though I am sure my other .bin file has the same password, this seems to be working now. Apparently the password embedded is used instead of the password included with the /cpwdfile switch. Seems like a bug to me, though. If it was a bad password it should just say as much.
