I have a machine running Windows XP Home SP3. I have a script that I run regularly on other Windows XP pro boxes that calls the Administrator account to do something. For security purposes, I won't go into how it gets its credential information.
Anyway, when I run this script on XP Home, I get the good old
Unable to log you on because of an account restriction
message and the script fails.
This behavior is by design. This issue occurs because the Administrator account has been set aside so that it can be used in Safe mode when the Owner account is not available.
Is there a way to enable logging in to the Administrator account in normal mode using Windows XP home so that this script will run?
