I need help writing a script that will auto login a certain user account.  Be it the local admin, or a domain user.

Hi SCP028,

Here's a bit of VB script that should do what you want:

  Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\DontDisplaylastUsername",   "0",   "REG_SZ"
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\DefaultUserName",   username,   "REG_SZ"
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\DefaultDomainName", "MYDOMAIN", "REG_SZ"
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\DefaultPassword",   password,   "REG_SZ"
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\AutoAdminLogon",    "1",         "REG_SZ"
  WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\LegalNoticeText"
  WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\LegalNoticeCaption"
  Set WshShell=Nothing

I hope that this helps - let me know if you need any further help.

Could it be that you look for using the RunAs Service ?
Here for Windows Server 2003:

Note that you will ALWAYS need to type the password in there :)

What is the intention of the scripts?

If you want the computer to auto login when it reboots there is an easier way than using a script.

Take a look at the link below for a very easy registry change:

For Win 2K you will need to make this change as well:

Scam,

Thanks for the script.  I will be testing it after lunch, but it looks like it should work.

Angel,

The reason i need this information is because my company is changing from an old NT Domain to a new 2003 domain.  Along with this change, we are changing domain names.

I am in charge of the client machines, and making sure all user data gets transfered.  So i have been researching and finding numerous scripts that will allow me to:

1.  Change domains
2.  Copy user profile from old to new
3.  take olddomain\username from local admin group and add newdomin\username to local group

A few of these scripts will have to auto-login and run, which is why i need the script.  

Thanks for the pointer to the run as shortcut.
