Targeting Devices to turn on AutoLogin K100

More of a mad admin. Trying to push a reg setting to a windows device label to add autologin capabilities. I've added a task and not sure with a verify or on success component would be necessary but if thats the case I can add. Right now I have the following that doesn't seem to be working. 

Verify

  1. Verify that “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon” exists.

  2. Verify that “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon!AutoAdminLogon is equal to 1” exists.

Remediation

  1. Set “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon”.

  2. Set “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon!AutoAdminLogon” to “1

Getting the following error:

  • Chuck is right. Try this for 64bit devices:
    HKLM64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon - Desktop Jockey 3 years ago

If you are running this script on a 64bit OS it won't work. The KACE agent is a 32bit application and can't access the 64bit area of the registry where these keys exist.
