I tried setting the following keys with no effect:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultUserName = username HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultPassword = password HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultDomainName = name of localhost HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AutoAdminLogon = "1" HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ForceAutoLogon = "1"
What am I doing wrong? How can I make it work? I'm using Win7 x64, but I'm also interested in a way to do it on XP.
Clarification: I need a solution that can be automated, hence I try to use the registry. Anything that requires user interaction is not fit for this question.
