Skipping the Preboot Screen

To streamline the Window update process, disks already encrypted by Full Disk Encryption can be configured to skip the Full Disk Encryption Preboot multiple times.

  1. Open a command prompt window with elevated privileges.
  2. Navigate to the following path:

    %Program Files%\Trend Micro\Full Disk Encryption

  3. Run DAAutoLogin.exe using the following parameters:

    DAAutoLogin.exe username:<username> password:<password> [domainName:<domain name> domainUserName:<domain username> domainPassword:<domain password>] [count:N]

    Note:

    Use a colon ( : ) to separate a key and its value.

    Refer to the examples below:

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication once

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:123456

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:1

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication once - use Domain account and login to Windows via single sign on using the same account

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:QA\user password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:1

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication once - Full Disk Encryption Preboot login account is different from the SSO account in Windows

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= domainName:QA domainUserName:user domainPassword:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:1

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication 9 times

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:123456 count:9

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:9

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication 9 times - use Domain account and login to Windows via single sign on using the same account

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:QA\user password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:9

    • Bypass Full Disk Encryption authentication 9 times - Full Disk Encryption Preboot login account is different from the SSO account in Windows

      DAAutoLogin.exe username:tmee password:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= domainName:QA domainUserName:user domainPassword:=5mih67uKdy7TlVaN2ISWGQQ= count:9
