Account Time Restrictions Prevent Logging On Using CPS Utility


After you use the Computer Profile Setup (CPS) utility from the Windows NT Resource Kit, you may see the following error message:

Your account has time restrictions that prevent you from logging on at this time. Please try again later.

More Information

When you try to use the CPS utility to set up identical copies of Windows NT on Intel-based computers, the error message appears after you try to log on to the Intel-based computer running the newly installed Windows NT.


The time zone parameter in the CPS utility is incorrect.


  1. When you use the Winntp.exe utility, be sure to use lowercase parameters.
  2. When specifying the TIMEZONE, be sure to use the exact syntax as it appears under Time/Date in Control Panel, for example,

    (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time(US & Canada)
You could also leave the TIMEZONE entry blank and enter it manually later.
