BGInfo not displaying correctly after Remote Connection

I've configured bginfo with the settings I need for display.  I'm using it in Group Policy so that our domain users' desktops will display this information after logging in to our domain.

When I use Remote Desktop to reach our domain controller (where bginfo is configured), I receive the following in the bottom right corner:
                                                                                          IP Address:                10.18.xx.xx

                                                                                          Username:                 userone
                                                                                          OS Version:                Windows 7
                                                                                          IE Version:                  IE11

The blank line that follows the IP Address line is there because I've added a "script file" to eliminate the display of the IPv6 address.

When I use Remote Desktop to reach a client computer on the domain, I receive the following in the bottom right corner:
                                                                                          IP Address:                10.18.xx.xx
                                                                                          0.0.0.0

                                                                                          Username:                 usertwo
                                                                                          OS Version:                Windows XP
                                                                                          IE Version:                  IE8.0

Those zeroes and another blank line are minor distractions, but I'd sure like to make them go away.

Please advise.

Below is the bginfo.bat file that gets everything started.  Then entire command is on one line instead of two.

\\xxx.local\netlogon\Bginfo\bginfo.exe \\xxx.local\netlogon\bginfo\bginfo.bgi /timer:0 /nolicprompt

Below is the script file that keeps the IPv6 address from displaying onscreen.

strMsg = ""
strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set IPConfigSet = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select IPAddress from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = 'True'")

For Each IPConfig in IPConfigSet
 If Not IsNull(IPConfig.IPAddress) Then
 For i = LBound(IPConfig.IPAddress) to UBound(IPConfig.IPAddress)
  If Not Instr(IPConfig.IPAddress(i), ":") > 0 Then
  strMsg = strMsg & IPConfig.IPAddress(i) & vbcrlf
  End If
 Next
 End If
Next

Echo strMsg

That's it.
