Exe/XML: Add placeholders for scriptuser & scriptpassword (+ maybe a set of custom parameters?)



Basicly the same question as in the following topic:


Would be very useful to have separate placeholders for the %scriptusername & %scriptpassword like already exists for the %windowsuser and %windowspassword placeholders of the parent device.

Maybe even provide the possibility to set a some custom parameters on the device and allow those to be used in as placeholders as well...
