Just on the command line of bginfo, it's an option. See bginfo reference if you need to: here.

create .bgi file as you want and save it. then create .cmd file and set it under startup folder

create background.bgi file and save it under C:\BgInfo
then open notepad and put:

@echo off
C:\BgInfo\bginfo.exe C:\BgInfo\Background.bgi /timer:0

Open in new window

save as Bginfo.cmd (be aware to don´t save as .txt and put into startup items (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (it make it to be in startup folder)

In your commandline you should have "/timer:0" instead of "timer:0" - that's probably the reason why you get the popup. You could put the commandline in a batch file and call that in your logon script for example. Put this in your bat file:

\\home\Netlogon\BGinfo\BGinfo.exe \\home\Netlogon\BGinfo\Networknet.bgi /timer:0 /Silent /NoLicPrompt

None of your solutions work. Now even no pop up. This wallpaper should be updated on clients' desktop when they log in.

For testing, can you add /log %TEMP%\bginfo.log and look in the logfile to see what is going wrong?

/silent causes errors that may appear to be suppressed
