Does anyone know how to customize the watermark on Windows 7 Enterprise x64?  I tried the suggestion on the link below, but after its saved, and I reboot, it still applies the old one and when I reopen it in the resource hacker, its the old windows and build number text.

Another way is

Resource Tuner: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QCSDV798

Steps
1. Get Res Tuner.
2. Locate C:\Windows\system 32\En-us
3. Find User32.dll.mui
4. Take ownership of it.
5. Open it in res tuner.
6. Modify string 45 (line 715-716)
7. Save the file
8. Restart

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm not prejudiced.  I could have uploaded the file to my own servers, put it on amazon S3, used the link with a 302 redirect from somewhere else.. but why bother. it is 3 batch files and 2 .reg files

ve3ofa: I understand how to turn on the watermark... but I want to be able to change both of those lines or put a watermark somewhere else on the screen.  I will give Resource Tuner a shot, but last time I tried with Win 7 Enterprise x64; even though I change the file, it wouldn't save it.  And after a reboot it changed back.

you forgot to take ownership of the file and also "run as administrator"

put a watermark somewhere else on the screen

Can't be done using these methods: bottom right is fixed

you can always change the wallpaper
