    That's a contradiction: With (only) a local account you can't get access to the ModernUI-Apps. Only if you add a MS-Account you can use ModernUI-Apps!

    Also a local Admin-Account has nothing to do with permissions to ModernUI-Apps.

    DON'T CHANGE ANY PERMISSIONS ON FOLDERS FOR MODERN-UI-APPS !!!!! This is a sure way to brick your ModernUI-Apps!

    Thanks for reply.

    Your mean from MS-Account is created Account in Normal Installing windows by user? because when I create manually account at during installing windows, can get access to the ModernUI-Apps.
    if your answer is yes how can make MS-Account in autounattend?

    Try editing this to your needs. The actual "administrator" account won't work with metro apps without a reg tweak (i think). I use the below, but re-name the administrator to admin. Metro also won't work with UAC completely disabled no matter what you do.

    Code:
               <UserAccounts>
                 <LocalAccounts>
                     <LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
                        <Password>
                            <Value>lol</Value>
                            <PlainText>true</PlainText>
                        </Password>
                            <Description>Administrator Account</Description>
                            <DisplayName>Administrator</DisplayName>
                            <Group>Administrators</Group>
                            <Name>Administrator</Name>
                     </LocalAccount>
                     <!--LocalAccount
                     <LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
                        <Password>
                            <Value>lol</Value>
                            <PlainText>true</PlainText>
                        </Password>
                            <Description>My Account</Description>
                            <DisplayName>Me</DisplayName>
                            <Group>Administrators</Group>
                            <Name>Me</Name>
                      </LocalAccount>   
                      LocalAccount-->     
                     </LocalAccounts> 
                 </UserAccounts>

    I have been looking for a while how to rename the actual administrator account for windows 7/8.x using unattend.xml/scripts/reg-tweaks, but not able find anything related to it so far, if anyone knows about it do post it here.

    I know we can change the name using the local security policy editor but I want it the automatic way like nlite there is an option for changing administrator name

    haha yeah i got a few quirky ones such as that.

    Perodic tables, linux commands, guns type, typeface.

    Handy, interesting, and hopefully someday I'll be able to recall the stuff off it without looking :p
