How to find Local Security Policy

Hi,

I want to find a solution so that Synback (2Brightsparks software) allow me to create a schedule task allowing empty passwords, which it doesn't allow now. I am running Win 7 x64 Home Premium and I receive the error:

0x8007052f: Log in error: Account restriction. Possible reasons could be that empty passwords are not allowed.

They refer to Local Security Policy to make a change:

"If you receive the error message "Error message: User account restriction error." then you must:

- In Windows Vista select Start -> Control Panel

- Switch to Class View (on the left)

- Double-click the Administrative Tools icon

- Double-click the Local Security Policy item

- Navigate to Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options

- Double-click the item Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only

- A window will appear. Select the item Disabled and click OK.

- Close the Local Security Policy window"

Thanks for any help!

Thanks, however, I have been able to run Syncback schedules in both Vista and 7 using blank passwords before (because I am a single user and don't need any password) so this can not be the case. Is there a misunderstanding maybe?

Again, how to find Local Security Policy in 7 Home Premium, if possible?


Please post your method in case you succeed in running a scheduled task under an account with a blank password.

Windows 7 Home Premium lacks a policy editor. You can duplicate many of its operations by hacking the registry directly, using this voluminous spreadsheet as a guide:

You need to be running Windows 7 Pro or higher. Your computer needs to have "gpedit.msc", which is only found in the professional editions of windows 7.
