To do this, follow these steps: In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value. Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER. Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value Data box.If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows XP automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.

Example : 

The Login Name is replace by the user name used when installing LoriotPro. Remember that  LoriotPro is installed by default for a single user.
