  • If you are logged onto the Windows Developer Preview when you change a Windows Live ID password, you have a password token for the old password.
    It is not changed until you log off. So you are experiencing the correct behavior with the old Windows Live password.
    Once you log off and log back into the computer, you receive a token for the new Windows Live password and the old password no longer works.

    Sincerely,
    Marilyn
