Yes I know this problem!

I can solve it! (but on Linux :( )

It gives this error because you cannot create users if you haven't got admin's premissions!

You can hack the password if you want with C++. I will do a video how to do it (Working on Windows 7, XP, Vista, 8, 2000 and more!). Then you can create a Admin Type user.

Admin -> Admin type
User -> User type
Guest -> User type, No password


Admin -> Users / Guests
User -> nothing
Guest -> nothing

I'd ;ike I was helpful!
