Embed Writing in Windows 7 Desktop Screen Pt2

Hello Experts

I have installed bgInfo v4.20 as advised by Experts. However, each time I reboot the desktop settings disappear.

Can someone show me how to make the desktop settings remain when I reboot or log off.

Just so you I access the PC via RDP. So this might be part reason why it disappears each time I log off, but not sure

I tried

reg add HKU\.DEFAULT\Software\Sysinternals\BGInfo /v EulaAccepted /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

And it didn't work

The following almost works, but I can't get it to work as a batch file:

\Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe \Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt

It works if I run it from start menu

try starting the batch file with

echo on

and ending with

echo off

So I looked at your other link and created the following:

@echo off
CALL "c:Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe" "c:Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi" /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt

but didn't work
Helao MwapangashaData Centre: Server EngineerCommented:
change the path to a UNC path instead and tey it again

cpatte7372Author Commented:

What about;

@echo off
CALL "\\\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe" "\\\Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi" /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt
Helao MwapangashaData Centre: Server EngineerCommented:
make sure the path is the same for both locations in the script


but i would use a share if u decide to apply it in production. not all users will have access to "c$" admin share

So I tried:

@echo off
CALL "\\\c$\users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe" "\\\c$\Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi" /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt

no joy
