On one of my windows devices that I like to use is only has a local account, which is password less. Normally this is not allowed why trying to remote into this de-vice, as the following error will appear.

Error trying to login using a blank password

Error trying to login using a blank password

There is a very simple fix to this error by making a registry change.

Note: This requires changes in the registry and therefore requires administrator access.

  1. Open Registry Editor

  2. Navigate to:

  3. Set the LimitBlankPasswordUse DWORD (32-bit) to value 0

The change should become active immediately.

If you wish to run a cmd command, you can run the following:

REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa /v LimitBlankPasswordUse /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
