In Admin Control Panel you can Edit the User and change the password there. Give them a temporary password so they can login and change the password themselves.

can't find that option, under user tab, I use search to get the username, only brings me to create new user function, when I enter email, password etc, get following error

this might be a xenforo's bug, when admin wanna update a user's info, it should just ask for confirmation for duplicated records

@Adam Howard, please watch the way you interact with licensed customers. If you suspect a user is using a nulled copy, report it and move on.

On a general note, everyone needs to be cautious when providing support in the public forums. I have moved this to the support forums. Off topic discussion has been removed.

To reset a password, log into your AdminCP
Find the member you are looking for
Type in the new password into the password field
Save

In addition, @Chris Deeming also has an add-on that will allow the system to automatically rest it, but simply checking the box show above without needing to come up with a password.

I'm also a man of my word and will admit that, I was incorrect in my accusation and I publicly apologies to you. I felt there was enough support evidence, but clearly I was incorrect.

thank you, but you can create a dummy user first then give it a try to see if your way works
refer to my previous post, there will be an error, take a look at my attached picture.
