    Win10 PasswordRequired doesn't work on new Guest LID


    Using this post:
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html
    I created a Guest LID (logon ID) in APR (called it GuestX).

    However, a few months ago, it demanded I enter a password. At that
    time, as a temporary circumvention, I just used CP/User Accounts to
    assign one, even tho I knew it wasn't what I wanted. I was working on
    other problems.

    But, last week, when I tried to logon to it, it said 'password
    expired'??? I have never seen this in Win7.

    I changed these 3 for my new GuestX LID w/wmic:
    PasswordExpires
    PasswordChangeable
    PasswordRequired
    to False, to match what Win7 has. Specifically, for this problem, the
    last one, yet, I still can't logon to it w/o having to enter a
    password?

    In Win7, wmic shows this:
    AccountType=512
    Description=Built-in account for guest access to the computer/domain
    Disabled=FALSE
    Domain=aaa
    FullName=
    InstallDate=
    LocalAccount=TRUE
    Lockout=FALSE
    Name=Guest
    PasswordChangeable=FALSE
    PasswordExpires=FALSE
    PasswordRequired=FALSE
    SID=bbb
    SIDType=1
    Status=OK

    In Win10, it(they) show the same thing:
    AccountType=512
    Description=Built-in account for guest access to the computer/domain
    Disabled=FALSE
    Domain=ccc
    FullName=
    InstallDate=
    LocalAccount=TRUE
    Lockout=FALSE
    Name=Guest
    PasswordChangeable=FALSE
    PasswordExpires=FALSE
    PasswordRequired=FALSE
    SID=ddd
    SIDType=1
    Status=OK
    AccountType=512
    Description=
    Disabled=FALSE
    Domain=eee
    FullName=
    InstallDate=
    LocalAccount=TRUE
    Lockout=FALSE
    Name=GuestX
    PasswordChangeable=FALSE
    PasswordExpires=FALSE
    PasswordRequired=FALSE
    SID=fff
    SIDType=1
    Status=OK

    so why must I enter a password? Even CP/User Accounts says it is
    'Password Protected' in the icon area for it.

    Is there something else I have to do to make this work like it does
    in Win7?

    I ended up deleting and re-creating it per that post, then changed
    the 3 in the new LID manually (which I did NOT do the first time).
    Now, it went back to operating like when I first did this (no
    password required, just the 'sign in' button).

    So, perhaps I did something wrong the first time, or, more than
    likely, this will become problem#46 w/Win10 over Win7. I guess time
    will tell.

    Unfortunately, I had to re-do many settings (IE,Tbird,etc) as I
    can't trust it doing it.

    If anyone has a permanent resolution, I'd appreciate it. Thankx...

    I also changed maxpwage from 42 to unlimited for all accounts
    (really, just for GuestX, since all my others are already FALSE).

    These 4 changes seem to have circumvented this problem, since,
    as of now, I haven't had any more problems w/GuestX.
