Support Anfrage: Encode UIAutoLogonPassword with PowerShell

Beschreibung

We have the need to configure multiple Kiosks, each with a different domain service account.

I have written a PowerShell script to build the startup.xml, but I need to know what type of encoding is used to set the UIAutoLogonPassword. Or a method to pass the credentials / startup configuration to one of your EXEs to build the startup.xml (or just populate the registry information) from command line.

If none of that is possible, is there a way to launch the "SiteKiosk Quick Start" after a startup configuration has already been set? (Without having to first start SiteKiosk then exit out of it)

Thanks,

We do not have additional information about the password encryption in the startup.xml but you can check using any other another tool / method for the auto login on Windows and then use the startup.xml only to make sure that SiteKiosk automatically starts when any user logs in.

General note:
For activating the auto login SiteKiosk just uses regular Windows registry settings:
- AutoLogon:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AutoAdminLogon", "1", "REG_SZ"
-->1= on / 0 = off

- Name:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultUserName", "SiteKiosk", "REG_SZ"

- Domain resp. Workgroup:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultDomainName", "Workgroup", "REG_SZ"

In regards to the auto login password encryption in the Windows registry we have used the following procedure from Microsoft:
