Passwords not stored as plain text

We have been using this tool for some time, and have over 50+farms. One of the issues we have is that the password is stored as plain text in the XML. Is there a way to encrypt only the password and have it read correctly? Or possibly prompt for the password during the install as required so no passwords are stored in the file?

Hi Brian,
As far as I remember, if you don't enter a password, it will prompt for a password when the script comes to that account, $host.ui.PromptForCredential is all over the script.

Oh, awesome! I will have to try that out and see if it works. Thanks!
