How does one invoke a slideshow screensaver domain-wide GPO but with pictures located on each local machine ? On the DC,  i have given the executable as ssmypics.scr and that seems to kick off on the local workstations but can't get pointed at same picture location for each user of same local machine. It works fine for the Admin user who repointed picture location to docs & settings\all users\"picture folder" but the picture search reverts to user profile\"My Documents" for additional users.
