You don't say what OS, so it's hard to be exact, but all you need to do is change the registry to switch EEPC out of the GINA/Credential Provider chain.
there's no "supported" mechanism to do this though.
Sorry. Windows 7. Can you point me in the right direction of what specific registry setting? I'm fine with writing a .vbs script to modify the registry.
I'm not that familiar with the credential provider architecture, or the repercussions of changing it - I think the Microsoft documentation might be more relevant?
The only supported way of doing this would be to change the parameters in EEM and sync. I'm not sure that's going to help you though.
Got it. This article I mentioned in my previous post wasn't the exact answer but it got me on the right track.
Just adding the Disabled value to the provider entry as the article suggests didn't work. I ended up entirely deleting the appropriate GUID key for the SbCredProv provider under both the Credential Provders and Credential Provider Filters keys (after exporting that section so I could add them back after the software setup finishes).
The user still has to log in to McAfee Encryption on the reboot, but after that Windows will auto-login using the special account that the software install created.
