User and Administrator Account Setup

If you use NTFS, Windows XP Embedded includes two components for managing user account names, groups, and passwords:

  • The Administrator Account component. You set up only one Administrator account in a configuration.

    You must set up an Administrator account in order to set up user accounts. If you do not add an Administrator account component, then run-time images are created with a single user account with full administrative privileges.

  • The User Account component. You set up a separate user account for each user in a configuration.

For more information on Administrator Accounts and User Accounts, see Administrator and User Accounts.
