Auto login with Windows standard embedded. Help Please. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am using Windows Embedded standard and wish to automatically logon every 24 hours with an over night auto re-boot.
    I set up the auto log in using netplwiz and it works initially for the first couple of reboots but then stops and goes back to the log on screen.
    I have tripple checked the method i am using i.e. selecting the correct user and then applying but nothing seems to help.

    I have two admistrator accounts set up.

    Any ideas welcome.

  • Hello,

    check the registry if there is an value "AutoLogonCount" within thte "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" key. If yes, delete it. AutoLogonCount will be decremented each time the autologon. Automatic logon will be disabled when this value is zero...
