I did some testing with the strings "AAA" and "WIN" as mentioned on http://www.hackthissite.org/articles/read/1022 -- both worked perfectly but unfortunately, even though I am using the modulus operator to determine if the remainder is 0 before selecting a letter to divide by, and then dividing it, I seem to get the incorrect answer to the actual hash. I'm not going to send the source code to my program, as that might end up making it so that people who have no idea how to do this get free credit for simply running a program, however,I am willing to send a pre-compiled exe file that attempts to solve the hash to anybody who already beat the mission, as I spent quite some time on this (even though it calculates the numbers wrong), and cheaters don't deserve the points.
EDIT: The solution I get is exactly 13 characters but unfortunately it doesn't validate...

Hopefully this will be straightened out soon.

Just finished. Have anybody done this mission without double type ? (Just using integer variables with the same size as the batch program. It's a bit more work.)
Hint: you could brute force directly with the password string to win this mission at your own command shell but it not the meaning of this mission. Just brute force with the hash in the way of modulo. So, first you must find out what the modulo is in this case.
