I've placed the BGinfo.exe and BGinfo.bgi in the below location.


 I then created  GPO for logon to call up the batch file containing the below parameters.

\\domain\sysvol\\scripts\BGInfo\BGInfo.exe \\domain\sysvol\\scripts\BGInfo\BGInfo.bgi /TIMER:0 /silent /NOLICPROMPT

But, when the user logon into his pc, the BGInfo.exe appears with all its generatic selections. After few seconds, a nother screen from Windows will pop up saying that it cannot open the BGinfo.big file.

I'm not familiar creating script through VB so I've used a simply batch file with GPO from active directory, but it ain't working for me.

Appreciate any help.
