Enable Auto Logon (VBScript) by monsterjta
Posted: 21 Jan 07 (Edited 25 Mar 07)

This VBScript will enable auto logon to a Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 server, or a Windows 2000/XP workstation.  Run this script directly on the server or workstation that you wish to have auto logon configured.

Save this code with a .vbs extension.  Then, specify values for the following, (removing the brackets in the code):



'VBScript: enableAutoLogon.vbs            =
'This VBScript updates the registry to    =
'enable auto-logon.  Modify the three     =
'strings in brackets, under "Define       =
'keys and values".                        =
