LAPS is the new way to administer the built-in local administrator's password: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=46899&wa=wsignin1.0

For a slightly better solution, see my article https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/18180/A-concept-for-safe-user-support.html

"The old way" was destroyed because it was incredibly insecure. Don't use it.
To use it, you'd have to uninstall the patch that destroyed it, it was kb2962486, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2962486
