    2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
    3. Look for LimitBlankPasswordUse name on the right pane, double click on it and set the value data to 0.

    OR

    1. Click the Start button and type gpedit.msc in the Search programs and files bar and hit enter.
    2. At the left pane, go to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options
    3. Look for “Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only” and double click on it.
    4. By default the Enable option is selected and all you need to do is select “Disable” and click OK.
