How to create a new user on Windows VE's
Posted by Barry Bahrami on 04 January 2008 10:47 PM
From the Windows Start menu select Administrative Tools | Computer Management. If this menu item does not exist, you are either not an administrator for the computer or the server is a domain controller and you need to create a domain user instead.

From the Computer Management dialog, navigate to System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Users on the left panel; right click on Users and select New user from the popup menu.

In the New User dialog, enter the User name, Full name and Description, respectively.

Uncheck box User must change password at next login and then check box Password Never Expires.

Click the Create button to create the user and then click Close button.

--IMPORTANT--If the new user will logon over Remote Desktop, it must be made a member of the Remote Desktop User group

double-click the username on the right panel.

From the Properties dialog, select tab Member Of and click the Add button.

From the Select Groups dialog and in the Name box, type "Remote Desktop Users" or "Administrators" (if the new user should be an Administrator) and click the OK button.
