I am using the Windows 95 batchsetup to install the workstations from the network. Everything works fine, but I want default another wallpaper (Blue Rivets) when a PC is installed. What setting must be added to the 'MSBatch.inf' file?

Have you tried to add following lines to msbatch.inf

[Setup]
Wallpaper="Blue Rivets"

[OptionalComponents]
"Desktop Wallpaper"=1

or to wini.ini

[Desktop]
Wallpaper=c:\windows\blueri~1.bmp

The only right answer is to create a subsection [Default.bmp].
And don't forget the HKU entry on the first row.
example :

[Default.bmp]
HKU,".Default\Control Panel\Desktop","Wallpaper",,"blueri~1.bmp"

in the [OptionalComponents] section of course be sure to set
"Desktop Wallpaper"=1

I think your answer is close solving the problem. Thus far I can't find the right syntax. I've tried several options but didn't find the correct one. I keep trying.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Blij,

I have not found the right syntax to automatically select the Wallpaper 'Blue Rivets'. The have tried a lot of possibilities but it won't work. Do you have the correct syntax?
The following was inserted in 'MSbatch.inf':

[Install]
Addreg=Default.bmp

[Default.bmp]
HKU,".Default\Control Panel\Desktop",Wallpaper,,"C\Windows\Blue Rivets.bmp"

[OptionalComponents]
"Desktop Wallpaper"=1
