Need to somehow script a registry entry to automatically enable secondary monitor on system startup.
current Intel chipset driver has a bug that disables second monitor on a remote system after connecting via Remote desktop. It causes XP to "uncheck" the "extend my desktop..." selection, even after re-boot.
Remote machine user is point-of-sale cashier who can't access windows to change settings back(which does work).
Tried different drivers.
Tried rolling back to older RD client software.
Intel claims that chipset was "Intentionally designed" this way. In other words they messed up and couldn't fix it before releasing it.
Any help appreciated.

Not necessarily. You just have a topic that will require just the right person to respond.

Unfortunately I can't help.
I can tell you that after 3 days you can post in "the waiting room" and someone will get to it then.
