Automatically Login Windows System User In TestStand 3.1

I have checked the "Automatically Login Windows System User" in TestStand 3.1. However, when I re-start TestStand I still have to enter the password each time. Why is this happening? Both the username and password do exist in the Users.ini file. I am using Windows XP SP3. I have already talked to a NI support engineer and they did not have an answer. Thanks for the help.

Is the name of the user in TestStand the same as your windows login name?

At the very beginning, I initally verified that the users.ini file contained the correct needed information.

Hi ic2118,


Can you move the Users.ini file (C:\Program Files\National Instruments\TestStand 3.1\Cfg) to a new location and restart TestStand. The file may have been corrupted and moving it out of the Cfg folder will force TestStand to create the file again.
