Windows 7: Automatic login of multiple user accounts

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)
 
 

Will you ever need to logon as those accounts or do they just need to be running?

The remote desktop solution kind of overcomplicates this, though I do appreciate the post

Nope, I never have to do anything in those accounts. Just have to have them running

Ok then can you do this:

runas /u:Account1 "c:\StartUp.exe"
runas /u:Account2 "c:\StartUp.exe"
runas /u:Account3 "c:\StartUp.exe"
runas /u:Account4 "c:\StartUp.exe"
runas /u:Account5 "c:\StartUp.exe"

aha looks good, but:
1. Where do i run that from?
2. Does the fact that I have a password on the account complicate matters?

I have not made it all pretty or anything I just wanted to know if it would work before we started tweaking it.

Open an elevated Command Prompt and type each one in and see if they work the way you need. We can deal with the password and other stuff if this works.

Created a new user to test it out

Command prompt returns: "the system cannot find the file specified"

Ok I was guessing at the name of your file. You will need to enter the path and file name you want to run and you will also need to use your user accounts, again I was just guessing. You can try it with notepad if you want?

runas /u:Account1 "notepad.exe"
runas /u:Account2 "notepad.exe"
runas /u:Account3 "notepad.exe"
runas /u:Account4 "notepad.exe"
runas /u:Account5 "notepad.exe"

Notepad works, whether the account is signed in or not. Just tried in both instances

So is that going to do what you need?

A most hearty thanks!
