anyone know how to make Sierra Wireless Aircard Watcher application save its password, so I don't need to type "telecom" everytime to connect?

Yes I have tried clicking save password checkbox, and going into the Aircard Watcher settings and saving the password from there.  Both to no avail

Yes I tried (and failed) to make it save by running Aircard Watcher as admin, and also by disabling Vista UAC.  Neither work.

Password doesn't seem to be stored in a registry or filesystem, at least not in an easy to find place

Yes I know I could just just a Dial Up Connectoid in Vista and save the password in there, but its pretty handy seeing your aerial signal strength etc

I had this problem with my Sierra Wireless Aircard, but since installing the watcher that came with the USB modem it saves the password as expected.

Perhaps you can get an updated watcher, or grab a copy of the CD off me this Wednesday?
