I have created a new Windows instance via the Horizon interface and try to log in as administrator, but how can I retrieve the password?

The hosting company where the OpenStack is running keeps on telling me I have to do this via Nova, but as far as I know there is no way I can give commands to Nova as I only have the Horizon interface.
