Using Windows XP Professional how can I get my computer to boot directly into
an application without typing anything on the keyboard. I can do it once I
select a user, but but this rewuires selecting a user. This is for an un
attended application that must start up and run from a cold boot. I can do
this from Wondows 2000, but I can not figure how to do this fron Windows XP
Professional.

Hi,

Logon without a password:
1. Go to Start - Run and type: control userpasswords2 and press
enter.

2. On the Users tab, left click your user name then clear the Users
Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and
then click OK.

3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the "user
name and password" for the account you want to be logged on each time
you start your computer.

Note: If you want to logon to one of the other users, hold down shift
as the system boots up.

Tip: Add Control UserPasswords2 to the Control Panel (Line 1)

Tweakui is another option. Install and go to Logon - Auto logon to set
it up.
Microsoft PowerToys - Tweakui for WinXP: Ver. 2.10 requires WinXP SP1

With NO Service Packs installed, the earlier version can be found

TweakUI can be accessed from Start - All Programs - Powertoys for
Windows XP
