Hey experts,

I have a screensaver file from corporate that needs to be installed on the local network.
I enabled the screen saver, the timeout periods, and the executable name through GPO. Well, after the timeout period kicks in the computer locks but the screen saver wont launch??

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this???

Is the screensaver time the same as the screen-off time? I would check this first

turns out that in the GPO the location was incorrect that it was pointing to looking for the .scr.
