Piffle.  I do it all the time.  Here's how:

Type  gpedit.msc and click [OK]
Navigate to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security 
Settings / Local Policies / Security Options
Double click on Accounts: 
Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only.
Select the radio button next to Disabled and click [OK]
