This message: "The password does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, password complexity and password history requirements." - is coming from your AD not from my tool.

Check the new password you are trying to change - the problem is probably what the message says - there is a password history setting in AD too, please check that also for how many old passwords it will not allow to use.
