Problem with Group Policy "Screen Saver Executable Name"
Posted on 2006-06-28
Windows 2003 server domain with XP workstations.
I'm using the Group Policy Editor to apply the Winexit.scr screensaver, so that the domain user is automatically logged off the workstation after a certain period of inactivity. I made the necessary changes to the winexit.scr, then put this file in a share on the fileserver, and pointed the Screen Saver Executable Name GPO to it.
So far so good.
Problem now is that the user doesn't have access to the registry, so when the GPO first tries to implement the screensaver & settings, the user gets an error message:
Erro Encountered while creating registry key. Make sure you have Set Value and Create SubKey permissions.
So there's some permessions I need to set in the registry for each user. What's the easiest way to centrally, automatically do that?
