Automatic Logon for Windows 9x
Posted on 2005-05-17
I need to make Windows 9x (98 annd ME) to automatically logon at startup. I have followed all directions provided by Microsoft in Article #310584, but to no avail. To be sure, I have added the following values to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
DefaultDomainName, REG_SZ, [domain name]
DefaultUserName, REG_SZ, [username]
DefaultPassword, REG_SZ, [password]
AutoAdminLogon, REG_SZ, "1"
I also have used other variations and spellings of these things, such as making AutoAdminLogon a REG_DWORD or REG_BINARY, or spelling it as AutoLogon. It just does not work. Any ideas? I would really appreciate it.
