    Question Deploying Desktop Backgrounds - What's the best method?

    Hi All,

    We are now a Windows 7 majority site and it all works brilliantly except the desktop background deployment.

    Currently we are using bginfo.exe and it doesn't deploy the first time a person logs on, they need to log off and log back on the same computer for it to deploy.

    I have tried Group Policy and I get the usual black background problem.

    What method do you use?

    Any help would be good.

    Thanks

    we deploy to over 700 pcs with no probs. even prep school have diffarent one.
    we push the wall paper image from a deployment share via group policy prefs.
    Its the FILE option in prefs.

    copy your jpg wallpaper from a deployment share to this location
    %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds\background default.jpg
    then in group policy there is option to set.

    navigate to:
    Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Logon.

    Once there, select “Always use custom logon background” and set it to “Enabled”.
