Useraccount picture gpo doesn't seem to work

Hello experts,

I've followed this guide:

http://blippy.net/blog/2011/01/customizing-windows-7rsquos-logon-screen-and-user-picture-with-group/

to change the useraccount pictures to our company logo.

But somehow it gave an error (see attachment).

Can someone please provide me with help?

Kind regards,

Len

The UNC path for the .bmp file is not accessible by the user.

Your UNC path: \\knbfile01\e$\deployment\Logo\user.bmp

You should share the Logo sub-folder to everyone and change the UNC path to...

\\knbfile01\Logo\user.bmp

0x8007005 error is an access permission error.  The user account doesn't have permission to change system wide objects .. have the copy run in the computer side of the group policy and not in the user side.

It is running in the computer side. Do you have more suggestions?

And it worked. I used the path \\knbfile01\e$\deployment\logo.bmp instead of \\knbfile01\deployment$\logo.bmp.

Thanks!!!
