i'm not familiar with WDS, but this script can do the trick.  If a method exists(I'm sure there is) to run a script post-install, then this should do it.  Note, a reboot/relogin may be required to activate the change.
Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
 

strComputer = "."
 

Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 

        strValue = "C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wallpaper1.bmp"
 

strKeyPath = "Control Panel\Desktop"

ValueName = "Wallpaper"
 

objReg.SetStringValue HKEY_USERS, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue

Thanks...
Can we mention a UNC path...
As the wallpaper has to be placed from a remote machine...

And will the settings on the machine be changed that when ever the wallpaper is removed by the user it inserts it back?

You can try changing the path to UNC, but I believe the file needs to be local.  You could set it to copy the wallpaper from a UNC path to the local machine.  If you need that code, let me know.

If you need to keep resetting the wallpaper back, you can set the script to run in the all users profile.  it will then execute on any user's login.

Just in case you need it, you can add the following.  Place this at line 4:
dim filesys, objOldFile, strComputer

Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

strComputer = "." 

' strValue is the full location of the wallpaper

strValue = "C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wallpaper1.bmp"

' registry location 

strKeyPath = "Control Panel\Desktop"

' registry value to update

ValueName = "Wallpaper"
 

set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' delete old file first in case a user overwrote it.

if filesys.fileexists("c:\destfolder\wallpaper.bmp") then 

    set objOldfile = filesys.GetFile("c:\destfolder\wallpaper.bmp")

    objOldFile.Delete

    set objOldFile = Nothing

end if
 

' now copy the new file.

If filesys.FileExists("\\UNC\Path\to\bmp\wallpaper.bmp") Then

   filesys.CopyFile "\\UNC\Path\to\bmp\wallpaper.bmp", "c:\destfolder\"

End If

' update registry to reference your bitmap

Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

objReg.SetStringValue HKEY_USERS, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue

the above is actually the fully modified script, no need to copy/past/insert into the first script tidbit.

Should this line be an UNC path?

filesys.CopyFile "\\UNC\Path\to\bmp\wallpaper.bmp", "c:\destfolder\"

I tweaked it for easier modification.  Just change the values between "Values to Change" comment lines.
Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
 

dim filesys, objOldFile, strComputer, strSourceFolder, strDestFolder, strFileName

strComputer = "."

' Destination directory

strDestFolder = "c:\destfolder\"
 

' The filename that is stored in the source folder and

strFileName = "wallpaper.bmp"
 

'============== End Values to Change ================

' registry  and key location to update.  shouldn't need to update these unless changing it for other purposes

strKeyPath = "Control Panel\Desktop"

ValueName = "Wallpaper"

' strValue is the full location of the wallpaper

strValue = strDestFolder & strFileName
 

set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' delete old file first in case a user overwrote it.

if filesys.fileexists(strDestFolder & strFileName) then 

    set objOldfile = filesys.GetFile(strDestFolder & strFileName)

    objOldFile.Delete

    set objOldFile = Nothing

end If

 

' now copy the new file.

If filesys.FileExists(strSourceFolder & strFileName) Then

   filesys.CopyFile strSourceFolder & strFileName, strDestFolder

End If

' update registry to reference your bitmap

Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

objReg.SetStringValue HKEY_USERS, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue

Had a little more time.  Realized I had some issues.  Word of advise when working with vbscript... Make sure you use "Option Explicit".  It forces variable declaration so if you mistype one somewhere in the script, you'll know it!  I thought I had that in there, but obviously not ;)

I also added a bunch of logic to check that the source file exists, destination dir exists (creates it if not) reports to the screen any errors.  If you want to add additional steps in the event of a failure, just look for the IF statements that check err.number and you can add whatever additional steps as you deem necessary (write to the event log, quit with a specific errorlevel etc).

this worked for me.  ensure strSourceFolder has a trailing \.  For example:
strSourceFolder = "\\Server\bmpshare\"

If that appears correct, if you post your edited version of the script(feel free to change the server name if you think that is too personal), I'll see if I can find the issue.

line 21 needs to be just:

use cscript.exe to run the script instead of doubleclicking.  that will just echo the results to the screen instead of generating pop-ups.  

you can also do a search and replace for:
wscript.echo
 and replace it with:
'wscript.echo

the ' is recognized as a comment.
There must be some permission issue on that windows 2003 box.  the script is sound.

if doubleclicking on the script runs it, I strongly recommend changing the default behavior corp-wide to be EDIT instead of open.  it will prevent people from doubleclicking on scripts that could be malicious.
