    Set desktop via group policy

    Now that I'm running dual screens, I want my desktop to look awesome. [3360x1080 dual image awesomeness!]

    However, due to the fact we're running CC4 I'm having a lot of problems. The desktops are controlled with registry settings, but I've disabled "mandate desktop image" [red X]. However, it still applies it. It was even applying it when it wasn't enabled OR disabled. [System admin accounts still have it unset.]


    I've saved the theme and the wallpaper I want to use in C:\Users\Public and set the relevent GP settings on this machine, but it only works on admin level accounts.

    Running "gpupdate /force" applies the one I don't want, even after multiple restarts.


    Have I missed a step or something?


    Le EDIT: It looks like it's working now...
