    MS took away a great deal of the Group Policy functionality from Pro. They did it to force organizations to pay the much higher price of Enterprise versions. They have basically stated that small businesses and individuals should not be messing with Group policy tools that they cannot possibly hope to understand.

    Well that's just great, I don't use the business features and this has kicked in :(
    It never demanded this when I clean installed RS2 either, it let me do a 4 digit pin.

    Fixed and FU Microsoft.
    For anyone else trying to find a way around this. Save the following as a registry file and reboot after merging it.
    Also rar with reg file attached.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\PassportForWork\PINComplexity]
    "Expiration"=dword:00000000
    "SpecialCharacters"=dword:00000000
    "MinimumPINLength"=dword:00000004
    "History"=dword:00000000
    "UppercaseLetters"=dword:00000000
    "Digits"=dword:00000000
    "MaximumPINLength"=dword:00000008
