Push Wallpaper Settings & Disable game executables Via Group Policy to entire domain
Posted on 2006-06-01
We have a Windows 2000 Server with Windows XP clients. I'm having difficulties pushing wallpaper settings via group policy to the entire domain. I dont want to use active desktop. I tried using a login script but it failed. I need the wallpaper bmp copied to the client's windows directory then have the registry setup to use the wallpaper. I know its possible to do it with a basic cmd script and registry file but for some reason the group policy won't get pushed to the client. I tried gpupdate on the client side and still no progress. Can anyone tell me step by step how to do this. I've tried other experts-exchnage posts yet I have no success.
Another problem that I have and tried is to block executables(games) from starting via group policy yet the client machines dont get updated with the new GP.
any help would be appreciated.
