Powershell-script: Modify of local(non-AD)-user accounts

I am looking for an [adsi]("WinNT://./$strUser, user") --> psbase.invoke("?","?") command for enabling 'Password never expires' and 'User cannot change password'.

I have succesfully build a script that changes passwords according to an CSV-file - see attached script, and now imagine adding two lines of code doing the job.

Help is greatly appreciated...
{
    $ImportUserListPath = "E:\Anders\JmaWebUserNamesPasswords.csv"

    $users = Import-Csv $ImportUserListPath
    Foreach ($user in $users)
    {

    $strUser = $User.username
    $strPWD = $User.Password
    $strUser
    $LocalUser =[adsi]("WinNT://./$strUser, user")
    $LocalUser.psbase.invoke("SetPassword", $strPWD)
    # Password never expires: $LocalUser.psbase.invoke( ??? )
    # User cannot change password: $LocalUser.psbase.invoke( ??? )
    }
}

QAD can only be used for AD accounts, not local.

I haven't tried this myself, but both these entries are userflags so you should be able to set the value of the userflag for the account. A good list of the values (which you simply add together) is at http://www.motobit.com/help/usrmgr/cl16.htm

Just like this...

Chris
# Constant values for these user flags
$UFCannotChangePwd = 64
$UFPwdNeverExpires = 65536


{
    $ImportUserListPath = "E:\Anders\JmaWebUserNamesPasswords.csv"

    $users = Import-Csv $ImportUserListPath
    Foreach ($user in $users)
    {

    $strUser = $User.username
    $strPWD = $User.Password
    $strUser
    $LocalUser =[adsi]("WinNT://./$strUser, user")
    $LocalUser.psbase.invoke("SetPassword", $strPWD)
    # Bitwise OR to add the existing value with the new flag
    $LocalUser.Put("UserFlags", $LocalUser.Get("UserFlags") -BOr $UFCannotChangePwd)
    $LocalUser.Put("UserFlags", $LocalUser.Get("UserFlags") -BOr $UFPwdNeverExpires)
    # Commit the change
    $LocalUser.SetInfo()
    }
}
