You could always use the command prompt, if you have adminstrator privliges.

I had this issue too, what I did was remove my password from my account and it auto logs you in then.

then all the way at the bottom enable the setting 'use my sign in info to..." if it's not enabled already.

Ok, here is a solution:


Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device\

There will be a key: DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion

Change its value from 2 to 0


That's all.


Knowing and guessing is not the same. I made that fix 3 days ago on new installation, so I know that it works.
