for delphi 2, try:

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, 'C:\windows\NewPaper.bmp', SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE);

or

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, 'C:\windows\NewPaper.bmp', SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE);

Not sure which one is the paramater for the last option.  I would test, but I just re-installed windows, and delphi isn't back up yet.
