    Hi,

    Is there any method to config a Windows 2000 Server that can be login
    automatically after restarting the server?
    Since I have some application that should be run after the restart.

    Thx.

    PS. The Windows 2000 Server is a domain server, not a stand alone server.

    1) Open the Registry editor: Start > Run > Regedit or regedt32
    2) Navigate to:
    HKey_Local_Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version
    3) Double-click the WINLOGON key
    4) On the resulting window, change the values for:
    Autoadminlogon to 1
    Defaultusername - enter username
    Defaultpassword - enter password
    5) Ensure that DontDisplayLastUserName value is set to 0.

    Note: TweakUI, a free download from Microsoft, can also be used to do this.

  6. Be aware this is a huge security risk and should never be used in production
    systems.
    Why do you need to do this ?
