Client has a Son who wishes to have the embed code for

the Hunger Games Website to run on his desktop so he sees

the fire move....  He says it's really Cool....

Kid has Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with 12gigs ram.

Got to make a Big Client look Great !!!!  For his Kid...

Do you mean, set the web page as his default desktop wallpaper?  If so, you could do that in older versions of Windows but that capability doesn't natively exist within Windows 7 due to the enhanced security.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Take a Peek at the Website and let me know.

It is a Flash Player type movie.

On the bottom it says embed.

You can click on it and copy it....

Now what do I do with it...

<object width="420" height="718"><param name="flashvars" value="XMLloc=http://www.thehungergamesmovie.com/motionPoster/xml/teaser.xml"></param><param name="movie" value="http://www.thehungergamesmovie.com/motionPoster/THG_MoPo.swf"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.thehungergamesmovie.com/motionPoster/THG_MoPo.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="XMLloc=http://www.thehungergamesmovie.com/motionPoster/xml/teaser.xml" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="420" height="718"></embed></object>

I believe that code is available to allow you to embed it on your own web page to help promote the movie.  However, I'm sure that someone else with more HTML-based expertise can elaborate more than me.

You can host that flash player in a local webpage (just open up notepad, paste the embed code, and save it as xxx.html) and then use a Desktop Gadget to display that (search the web).

Another option is to use something like this:
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505143_162-28645094/turn-web-pages-into-desktop-gadgets/

Bottom line is "active desktop" was removed in Vista/Win7; so you can't truly have the page as the desktop anymore like in WinXP.
