Auto logon Scripted install Issues

I am looking to utilize the mid-level task in my scripted installs called  [CU] Auto Logon.  Has anyone found a way to use this task with a local user account rather than a domain account?  If so how did you accomplish this?  

Bat Script Below:

@echo off

set strUser="Username"

set strPassword="password"

set strDomain="Domain.com"

@echo on

@echo "Adding Auto Logon information"

@echo off

for %%I in (Z W V U S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D C) do (   

if exist %%I:\WINDOWS set WINDOWS_DRIVE=%%I:


reg load HKLM\TEMP_SOFTWARE %windows_drive%\windows\system32\config\software>Nul

set regKey="HKLM\TEMP_SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

reg add %regKey% /v DefaultUserName /t REG_SZ /d %strUser% /f>Nul

reg add %regKey% /v DefaultPassword /t REG_SZ /d %strPassword% /f>Nul

reg add %regKey% /v DefaultDomainName /t REG_SZ /d %strDomain% /f>Nul

reg add %regKey% /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_SZ /d 1 /f>Nul

I use this script as a batch file and the only value that you'll need to modify is username and password, Hopefully, this is what you are looking for.

@echo off





set defaultun=USERNAME

set defaultpw=PASSWORD

set machinename=.


echo Creating automated login entries...

REG ADD "\\%machinename%\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v DefaultUsername /t REG_SZ /d %defaultun% /f

REG ADD "\\%machinename%\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v DefaultPassword /t REG_SZ /d %defaultpw% /f

REG ADD "\\%machinename%\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_SZ /d 1 /f


echo complete!


  • "." resolves to the computer name, I.E. to log into a local account on a domain joined PC you would use the format .\(LOCALUSER) - Kiyolaka 1 year ago
