How to change the default admin password from an external script?

I need a way to preinstall MyWebPagesStarterKit (1.2.0) with a custom password; is there a way to change the default 'admin' password from say, a script, after the directory has been uncompressed?
I tried to produce MD5 sum and replace the password (between the <Password> tags) in the Users.config file, but somehow it got overwritten with the old password every time I tried to log in.

Any help appreciated (I'm not a .NET developer though).
