So... we currently use active desktop for our wallpapers, which works nicely, but we're having to use IE6 for it to function. The powers that be have decided they want to upgrade to IE8, (which kills active desktop afaik).
How do you all set your student backgrounds? I'm thinking BGinfo is the way to go, but want some alternatives :)
Hmm, just found a reg key which allows me to use active desktop with IE 7/8 -
However... it seems to be set back to 272 after about 2 seconds of logging on, so i see my active desktop background, but then it disappears to be replaced with the black screen with a little x :-(
Change the value of DeskHtmlVersion to zero instead of decimal 272.
BGInfo, does all you need and JUST WORKS!!
Which is just what I need, with all of the other stuff that can go worng!!!
