Windows autologon

The only time I use Windows is as a virtual machine “appliance” ie it’s running some application that I have to run, that only runs on Windows. Often I want the VM to just logon automagically; here’s a registry file to do so. Save it as foo.reg and double click on it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon]
"DefaultUserName"="sonia"
"DefaultPassword"="secret"
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"

No rocket science, I’m just blogging it so I don’t have to look it up again…
