comment Remotely start VNC server on computer with no Admin password
Thanks for all the suggestions. Got "access denied" on the shutdown and sysinternals commands. Not sure what you meant about regedit? On the target machine? I can't access that at this time. But it looks like this is going to be the right answer mainly because no admin password is apparently bad news. Who would have thought not having a password would make it harder to get in to a machine? I should be able to have someone get physical access eventually but still locked out for now...

Thanks! Since the account has no password, I tried this without the "-p password" and still got Access Denied, then I tried it with only the "-p" and no password, and I got an invalid syntax message.

Thanks for the suggestion. Tried it and got "Access is denied.(5)". I don't suppose there is any way to specify the user name with that command?

Thanks for your suggestion! I tried it first using the exact text you provided (but with the IP address inserted), and I got: "Logon failure: account currently disabled". I tried again replacing "administrator" with the name of the active admin account, and I got this message: "Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced".

Thanks for the suggestion.. I tried that but got an error message. I don't believe Remote Desktop was ever enabled on the target.. I only installed the VNC server.
