Agent install on Windows with no user password

Problem:
I am attempting to install Activity Monitor Agent to a Windows XP machine, but I always get access denied error. With windows XP you can choose to login without a password. When this option is enabled activity monitor doesn't allow me to install Agent.

Activity Monitor can not install Agent remotely if a remote machine is setup w/o password. Otherwise anyone would be able to install it.
You will need to either setup a user password on the remote computer or to install Agent locally on that computer. To do it  run amagent.exe Agent installer from a flash disk or shared network location.

To be able to install Agent remotely you need to create a password for Administrator user on the remote computer.
