I am trying to run bginfo /all /timer:0 /silent in a cmd file

I then using the servers startup policy

I would like to have this cmd run every time I restrt the server

My servers are windows 2003 R2 Standard and R2 Enterprise

but when the script runs it never modifies the wallpaper

I know the script is running becasue I also have in the cmd file a net send whics broadcasts a a network message and everyone gets that message so I know the cmd files is working during the startup process when you see on the server Running scripts now I know it is working

It is bginfo that I am having the issue with

Anyone work with this program from systeminternals give nice info on the wallpaper at a quick glance

I might be using or not using the right parameters

Thanks

Tom

I usually just have the BGINFO.BAT in the \all users\start menu\programs\startup directory so anyone that logs into the server gets it on login.
