How to make Windows 7 local admin user account transparent

Previously with Windows XP, I would use the autolog.exe to have the local windows account login transparently while the user would login via their novell credentials. My company would like to roll out Windows 7 now, but unfortuantely, we are unable to make the windows local account log in transparent. I do not want my users to know this password - also it would really confuse them as they are not tech savvy to understand it.

Is there a way that I can make this happen? If you need more information, please ask and I will provide. Not sure what other info may be required here.

I am using Novell Client 2 SP2 - i find the SP3 to be problematic, but if SP3 would resolve this, I am open to the idea.

This isn't a server or administration question, it's a client question.
There's a client support forum, where you're more likely to get a helpful
answer. You might want to ask over there.

Thank you! I appreciate the response. I have been unable to locate the client forums - a Novell tech rep had told me to post it here. Not sure what route to take at this point.

Look under "Open Enterprise Server", then sub-forum "OES Client -
Windows".
