I have used tweakui, hacked the registry, and performed other stupid human tricks to get this to happen. We have some legacy applications that do not (will not) run as services. From time to time they crash and someone has to clear the error and restart the app. We found that by logging off and logging back on periodically clears all the messages and restarts the applications works perfectly. This was not a problem on NT4.0. We used a resource kit function called logoff.exe to logout the current session and used autolog.exe to automatically log back in as administrator and start the applications. Well this process does not seem to work in 2000. If the SERVER is restarted the system will autologon. But if you choose to logoff, it will not re-login. You are prompted to enter the password again. Is there a way to get this to behave the way NT4.0 did? If so. Please enlighten me. Thanks!
