Follow these steps to configure the DPS machine to automatically login both to Windows and to GP Agent:

Windows Login:

1. Enable Autologin for GP Agent (see KB article below)
2. Open regedit
3. Expand the registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
4. Add or Modify the following entries — be aware that this stores unencrypted password information in the registry:
a. DefaultUserName — this is the Windows login name you want to use
b. DefaultPassword — this is the password for the Windows login
c. DefaultDomainName — this is the Windows domain
d. AutoAdminLogin — Set this to 1
e. If AutoLoginCount exists, delete this registry entry
5. Log into the DPS computer and mark the Save Password checkbox.  Even if this feature is disabled for your GP system and not available for your GP login, it is available for your DPS login.
6. Add the shortcut you use to the launch the DPS to your Startup folder:
a. If using Windows 7 or Server 2008, copy the shortcut to the Startup folder
b. If using Windows 8 or Serer 2012, refer to this KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2806079 and copy the short cut to the startup location
