Does winexit ScreenSaver work on windows server 2008
Posted on 2009-04-23
We have a group policy applied internally to use the winexit screen saver to logoff users and force termination of applications after 15 minutes.
I have just installed a new windows 2008 standard server into the domain. It seems to apply the group policy correctly to use the winexit screen saver, however the settings for the winexit screen saver in the registry are not applied and it gives the following error message "Error encounted while creating registry section".
Now firstly this is happening for a domain admin, also I have applied the recommened fix to the permissions in the registry to allow everyone the set value and create subkey rights for the HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMappings\Control.ini key, however the error still occurs.
Has anyone got winext.scr working correctly on a WIndows 2008 server?
