Tweek UI configuration

By hocosta ·
I want to use Tweek UI to automatically login to a Novel Network. I check auto login on the network tab but it doesn't work. Does this feature work with Novel or just windows?

Tweek UI configuration

by Curacao_Dejavu In reply to Tweek UI configuration

for win9x

AUTO.EXE has been written to allow the Win9x Novell Client to automatically login to the workstation, allowing ZENworks policies, etc. to be used.

Use Auto.exe with the TWEAKUI from Microsoft, to select the Auto Login feature. My application will check to see if the workstation has been set to AutoAdminLogin. The application will also verify that the Novell Client is set to the Primary Network Provider before running. Otherwise it will exit quietly.

If you do not wish to use TWEAKUI, the application will look in the:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\ WINLOGON

key for the below values, which are placed there by TWEAKUI to allow the Microsoft Client to automatically login:

AutoAdminLogin: 1 = yes, 0 = no
DefaultUsername: username to use
DefaultPassword: password to use
Usage


AUTO.EXE /nosplash

/nosplash
Will prevent the Auto Login splash screen

Recommendation


When implementing AUTO.EXE it is recommended to place the AUTO.EXE in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory and modify the RUNSERVICES key in the registry to run this application. This will then launch prior to the Novell Login screen and will wait for the screen to pop up to automatically login the machine.

Under HKey_Local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runservices, add a string called AutoNovell, with the value of 'C:\Windows\system\auto.exe'

Contact Info


This application has been written for the specific purpose ofproviding automatic logon to the Win9x client. It is not intended for the WinNT/Win2000 machines as they already have the AutoAdminLogon feature and numerous TIDs relating to how to invoke auto logon with NT. This application has been deployed and is bug free for the intended purpose. Please feel free to use this, and provide me feedback on this application.
