Enable auto-complete in shell (command prompt) in Windows 2003 server

Out of the box, command prompt (cmd) in Windows 2003 Server has the auto-complete (tab-complete) feature disabled. To fix the problem open regedit and create following DWORD keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]

Open new command window and your TAB completion is working!
