[RadiusNT] Radusers

I'm trying to set a backup Radius server that will use a text file.

When I run the following command:

radusers emerald emerald user password

This displays on the command line:

Loading RadConfigs Users ... Writing ... 6
Loading Accounting Types ... 6
Loading RadATConfigs Users ... Writing ...

Then I get the dreaded Dr. Watson error

Exception access violation (0xc00000005), Address 0x7800fd73

I look in the log and this is the entry:

Event ID: 17058
Source: MSSQL Server
Catagory: ODS
Error: 17824, Severity 10, state 0
Unable to write to ListenOn connection "\\.\pipe\sql\query'.login 'user',
hostname 'server'
OS Error: 109 The pipe has been ended

I'm using RadiusNT 2.5 with Emerald 2.5 and SQL 6.5

Also, the command line requires me to put in a username and password as
plain text. If I run this command in a batch file to spool to the text file
that information will be easily read. I'm not crazy about that. How would I
use radusers without supplying a password?

If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.
