Set DefaultUser LogonScreen

I use this Netware Login Screen version 4 for NT Workstation. When I logged on as Administrator, I changed Username from USER1 to Administrator. Afterwards, I have to change it back to USER1. Is there a way to set default username as USER1 permanently? Maybe there is a registry string that I can use, but I don't know which one. I tried to go to Hkey_local machine\software\novell\nwgina\login screen\ and set defaultnetwareusername as USER1, but it didn't work.

PS. I don't want to use Login Script.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like you can't do that, only set it to a blank field.

No Default User for C32W95 Login (Last modified: 30JAN1999)  TID2932085
This document (2932085) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Symptom
User wants intraNetWare Client32 for Windows 95 to always display a default user identification in the GUI  login name field.
Solution
Currently this option is not supported but you can make this field blank. You can set a registry entry that will prevent that last user's login ID from showing up.


The registry key is located in the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
Change the value to "1" to set the username field blank.  If the value is set to "0" you will receive the last logged in user's name.


You can also refer to TID#2927442, for further information on these settings.


If you desire a Default User Identification in the Name Field in the GUI login please address requests via http://support.novell.com through the enhancement link on the web page.
