For security reasons I would like to check if the current Windows user has a password set for his account and if this password is requested when Windows starts up (meaning that the auto login with saved password is deactivated).
Is there one or more registry keys that I can query for this purpose?
I would like to use this check as a pre-setup check in the installation routine of a software developed by me. I am aware that this is not a great protection measure. It is only about fulfilling a requirement that any user authentication is enabled.
