Re: Can I turn off userid/password login screen for workgroup comp
No, this almost certainly is unrelated to UAC. The only impact UAC has on
remote access scenarios is if you are trying to access the files using an
account that is a local admin on the Vista box and the ACL on the file has
only Administrators in it. Local accounts get a filtered token when used
remotely to a Vista machine. If that is your case you can disable that
functionality without turning off UAC and disabling seven years of progress
How did you configure file sharing on the Vista machine? The reason you did
not get a prompt going from XP to XP was that you had an account with a
matching username and password on both computers. I would suspect that you
are logged on to the XP machines as "Administrator". That account is disabled
on Vista. Therefore, when your XP machine says "I'm the Administrator" Vista
says "great, but I don't know of any 'Administrator'".
To solve this problem you need to either create matching accounts and
matching passwords on all your computers, or create an account on the Vista
machine that has a password, and then save that user name and password on the
XP machines. Then you will not get asked for authentication again.
