Forcing XP theme for users
Posted on 2007-12-06
On a group of w2k3 servers I have set the group policy "User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Display/Desktop Themes2 to be "%windir%\resources\Themes\Luna\Luna.msstyles". This theme and path exists on al the servers. All the server have had the Theme Service set to automatic and are started.
Only one of the servers forces the XP theme - this is a new server that was installed at the time I was trying to enable themes, I don't know if this is relevant.
I am at a loss to understand how to ensure that users get the xp theme. I use roaming profiles and all users have the "Terminal Services User Profile" set.
