Win 98 Second Addition

By istimo ·
On an unattended machine, on power down and reboot, how do I get to the Desktop bypassing the network sign on screen? These units are connected to an AS 400 and go thru a power down and session reconnect once aq week.

download microsofts powertoys, if they'r not on your windows cd, then install them. You'll find a new icon in control panel called tweakui. when you start this, you set diverse settings, including default login name and password, etc.

In the Control Panel choose the Network icon and on the configuration tab set the "logon" to be a "Windows Logon". This will load Windows as a stand-alone logon which can be simply changed back as needed.

By going into network control panel, and setting windows to use 'Windows Logon' as primary. Once that's done, go to passwords control panel and change it to a blank password. At reboot, it will use the information from the windows .pwl files to log you onto the network, but you will not see a password prompt.

If you are trying to auto logon to a Windows NT domain, Microsoft article Q140709 has the proceedure to do this. If "session reconnect" means that you are connecting using some other protocol\client, I don't believe it's possible to do it.
