    Automatically connecting as Guest (without prompt) in Win Mobile Device Center (WMDC) on Win 7


      If you are using a Win7 machine and connect an embedded device you will see a prompt like this below. To bypass this and connect as a guest account automatically change the following reg settings on your PC:


      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] from %windir%\WindowsMobile\wmdc.exe to %windir%\WindowsMobile\wmdcbase.exe

      This elimitates the popup window each time you sync the device.


      AND this defaults to connect as Guest

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services] "GuestOnly"=dword:00000001
