If you find an answer to this let me know. I have two computers at work that are XP Home and I don't think it's possible. At least I haven't found a way. I think that's the primary difference between Pro and Home. To the best of my knowledge (and experience) you can't join it to a domain.

I would love for somebody to prove me wrong and tell us how.

They set Windows XP Home Edition so that it could not be used on domains, which would force many to upgrade to the more expensive Windows XP Professional Edition simply to join a network domain. However, it -is- possible to get on a domain using Windows XP Home Edition.


This can be accomplished with the free and widely available Xteq X-Setup 6.1 by navigating to the "Network \ Auto Login \ Windows NT/2K/XP \ Settings" option within X-Setup. Simply enter the appropriate information and click "Apply Changes" - upon your next reboot, you can then join domains with WinXP Home Edition. Problem solved. X-Setup includes many other useful Windows XP tweaks / hacks / etc. for Windows XP as well, all free for personal use.


They changed the name on me to X-Setup Pro
