Windows Auto Login Utility


In a school environment, our users are very accustomed to using windows 98. However, with the implementation of 2K and XP they constantly complained about the second (windows) login screen. This limited utility will automatically throw the appropriate registry keys to provide for an automatic login to windows with the credentials supplied. This app is intended for machines on a NetWare network that are not members of a windows domain. This exe spawned from Novell TID 10052847 with the following subsection:

Auto login to NT and manual Login to NDS

      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\AutoAdminLogon = 1
      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\DefaultPassword = NTpassword
      HKLM\SOFTWARE\NOVELL\Location Profiles\Services\[1E6CEEA1-FB73-11CF-BD76-00001B27DA23}\[Location_Profile_Name]\Tab3\DefaultDomainName = ACME_DOM
      HKLM\SOFTWARE\NOVELL\Location Profiles\Services\[1E6CEEA1-FB73-11CF-BD76-00001B27DA23}\[Location_Profile_Name]\Tab3\DefaultUserName = Administrator
      HKLM\Software\Novell\Login\AutoAdminLogon = 0
      HKLM\Software\Novell\Login\AutoAdminQueryNDS = 1

NOTE: This has to be a DWORD registry key. Creating it as a string will break the NDS login completely.
