Hi
 
One of my junior technician is trying to set up BgInfo v4.21 on a custom test system. He is telling that it is to be complicated and need to be done with Group Policy Objects. Is that true?
I thought it is easier. Can somebody provide me the easiest way to set up BgInfo v4.21 on a DC, Application Server and 3 Clients.
   
Many thanks in advance.

Hi,
 The easy way to deploy the bginfo it's to:
1. Create the template: costum the informations for what you need
2. Create the share and put Bginfo.exe and the Template.bgi
3. Create a simple powershell script to run bginfo
 \\fileserver\BGINFO\BGINFO.exe /accepteula \\fileserver\BGINFO\Template.bgi /Timer:0
4. create a gpo to run this script at logon

hi,
you can also create .bat file and put it in the startup folder:
C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
