Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe, but not without a lot of effort.  If you didn't write the app your are trying to feed the password to, you'd need to do something else.  Sendkeys, may or may not work.

What would probably work is to use winspy++ to get the appropriate windows handles, class names, etc and use low level windows programming by sending a message to the textbox with the appropriate text.  This is not trivial for sure.  You might even be able to send that box key messages using the SendInput() API function, https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms646310%28v=vs.85%29.aspx.
