Hi Jason,

I'm not sure what's your problem exactly, so I suggest two possibilities. 

What is in your ".htpasswd"

As far as I know in past windows/apache did not do password-hashing. Also SHA1 
might be used for hashing instead of MD5 (currently default). What hash do 
you get for "test"? For test2 password is test, too.

Modifing(?) AuthUser.php is not needed. You might have this in 
$AuthUser['htpasswd'] = 'local/.htpasswd';
