I'm trying to get a video editing computer up and running at my school. I want to have user accounts for every person in the class. Does anybody know the maximum number of user accounts a version of XP pro can have?

I'd done the same in my school - but a potential problem here. While I don't think there's a restriction on the number of users, XP creates gigantic Profiles for each of these users - that include his/her desktop settings+saved files on desktop, custom registry entries, cache space, application data etc. By the time you hit 20-30 users, these profiles bloat up enough to kill even 60-80GB hard drives.

If you do so, make sure you run the file, gpedit.msc and turn off both Local and Remote Profiles. Or else you're calling for trouble. :rolleyes: Once the Group Policy Editor runs, check under Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Logon. Under this you'll find plenty of options to turn off all kinds of profiles. Read through them and select the combination that meets your requirements the best.

Cheers :)

P.S. According to someone I know, the "theoretical limit" of local Win XP users is about 4 million or in other words, unlimited. But as I said, it's ONLY THEORETICAL. :)

I always thought that you could have as many users as you want. Once at my old school I setup so many users for all the kids in my class and it didn't have much effect on the laptop. (I deleted them all before I took the laptop to class. (LOL) I didn't need them. (LOL (again)))
