    Hello Karl!

    Yes, run the executable, enter the computer name (or Domain name if used), the user name and the password.
    All this little util does is enter the appropriate values in the registry. I have been using this since WinNT 3.5 on up to WinXP.

    Rupp,

    Nope; more like the equivalent of this:

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE>
    <LI> System (re)boots
    <LI> Logon screen comes up or "locked" screen comes up
    <LI> Logon to HomeSeer
    <LI> HomeSeer starts
    <LI> Proceed through "switch to other user"
    <LI> Don't logon to another user[/list]

    Except I don't want to have to go through the "logon" sequence leaving an open console where others could come up and do things with it. I do want everything else in the Start-up and other things set up in that id to run as they otherwise would.

    Thanks.

    Karl,
    Disconnected Mode? Do you mean as a service?

    I have been using this little auto logon utility for the past five years and it continues to work great!

    Start-up in Disconnected Mode

    These instructions work great.

    What I'd like to do in addition is to be able to not have HomeSeer come-up on the display. Rather, I'd prefer that it come up in "disconnected" mode.

    Is there an easy way to do that?

    definitely use the powertoys for XP, it has been out for a while now, if you use the windows 2000 one on XP, you might screw things up , since all it does is modify registry settings.

    I just loaded the one I use on Win2k and it works just fine.

    Yes Rupp, I have used tweakUI in the past, and it does have some nifty features. Is there one especially for XP? Last I looked, they did not recommend using tweakui for XP.

    I didn't read that article, but if it works like tweakui and logs you in then its better because it saves a download. On point though, TweakUI has a load of other utilities/options that come in handy from time to time.

    Yes, the posted procedure will log in any user you want automatically. No tweakui needed! (sorry Rupp )

    I use TweakUI and it does autolog me in and I can still connect using the password from any computer on my network. I also use Netmeeting to connect using the same password.

    Are you saying that that will automatically sign you in with your password? That would be great. I couldn'd just remove the password. I have 10 computers here and am always using the remote desktop connection to get from one machine to another.

    thanks,
