Deploy BGINfo.exe via GPO to Windows 7
Posted on 2012-04-11
We have successfuly deployed BGInfo.exe (sysinternals product) via GPO to Windows XP for a number of years without any problems. This is a two part policy, the computer section copies the exe, BGI config file and the JPG locally, the user section deploys the exe with the relevant switches.
When deploying the same GPO to a windows 7 machine it initially loads correctly as expected, but then roughly 5 seconds later it shuffles to the default background.
We have disabled the shuffle function via the computer Power Options within the same GPO, but this has not helped. In fact this stop the BGInfo background loading at all.
Any help would be appriciated as we are now under alot of pressure to deploy the BGInfo background to seperate clients asap.
Thanks in advance.
