U4-8419 - Web Platform Installer - Password displayed on screen is different than password using copy/paste

Created by rick 06 May 2016, 18:16:51 Updated by rick 06 May 2016, 18:16:51

Used the Web Platform Installer 5.0 to install Umbraco v7.4.3. At the end of the wizard (Finish tab) where it displays your new database information the screen shows the Database Name, Database User Name, and Database Password. I created a file to store this information, then noticed the copy to clipboard option, so I used it. When I pasted it into my file, the password from copy/paste was different than the password on the screen (which was still open). The copied password contained two ampersands (&) in it, while the screen displayed none.

Example (not actual passwords) Screen: y^]P4uBoq] Copied: y^]&P4uB&oq]

For the record, the copy/paste version was correct.
