BGINFO and GPO wallpaper

Posted on 2010-11-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am testing the bginfo utility and I have it working but trying to apply to our domain which has GPO wallpaper set, what happens in upon logon, the wallpaper changes immediately to display the BGINFO settings OK but then soon as the AD desktop kicks in, the BGINFO is lost.

Is there a way to force the order of bginfo to load after the desktop has run by GPO?

BGINFO is also setup using a GPO.

Disable active desktop in the GPO.

That would be too easy. the company has different wallpapers that get displayed diferent times of the year. This is the issue, so I need to still be able to update this as required. Its not that often, but they still require this to work.

we have had to create another batch file to run after login and run bginfo there, unable to work with GP
