Autologon User at Startup in Windows Server

This simple method has worked for me in Windows Server versions 2012 R2 through 2022. Create a new .reg file with the contents below, adjusting the USERNAME, PASSWORD strings as appropriate.  Then run it to add to the registry

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

If it is a domain joined machine, then add this line and modify the DOMAIN string.
