JSI Tip 7372. How do I display, rename, or manage the built-in Administrator or Guest account, without knowing its' current name?


Marty List brings us Builtin.zip to display or manage the built-in Administrator or Guest account, without knowing what the current name is.

The ReadMe.txt file contains:

BuiltIn Account Manager \[Version 1.10\]

Displays or manages the builtin Administrator or Guest account, without knowing
what the current name is.


The syntax of this command is:

BuiltIn.exe \[/details\] \[/newname:name\] \[/newpw:password\] \[/disabled:y|n\]
        \[/account:Guest\] \[\\computer\] \[/domain:name\]

 /details:      Displays the account details, instead of just the name.
 /newname:      Allows you to rename the account, 20 characters max.
 /newpw:        Allows you to change the account password, 256 characters max.
 /disabled:     Allows you to disable or enable the account. (If policy allows)
 /account:      Specifies the Guest account instead. (Default is Administrator)
 \\computer     Allows you to manage the account on a remote system.
 /domain:       Manages the domain account instead. (Overrides \\computer)


An argument of /? or -? displays this syntax and always returns 1.
A successful completion will return 0.
