    BGInfo Windows 7/2008 R2 Logon screen

    Hi everyone,
    Been using bginfo very happily for the last two years on 2003/xp- it's been such a time saver particually for staff/students reporting problems.

    I'm testing bginfo on Windows 7 but so far I can only get it to work for users but not for the computer logon screen. Has anyone found a way around this??
    I'm assuming it's because of permissions.

    I'm using a vbs with the following command;
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    objShell.Run "\\dc1\Utility\BgInfo\BGinfo.exe \\dc1\Utility\BgInfo\test1.bgi /accepteula /timer:0", 1, True

    Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
    Joe

    Its partially permissions, and partially windows 7 being different. I managed to use the information in this thread to get it working on windows 7:

    Can we get a new BGInfo for Windows 7? - Sysinternals Forums - Page 1

    Look about halfway down for a post by "hauerwas".

    Thanks Chris- How time flys!!! I should have done a bit more research myself.
    How did you run the cmd script at the computer startup?

    Cheers

    We don't run it at every start up because the data we show doesn't change that often, and we wan't to keep our logon times as quick as possible.

    We run it from our Altiris Deployment Solution whenever we rename or move a pc. You could probably use a group policy startup script, although I've not actually tested it.

    I came across this blog post using BGinfo with Windows 7 via group policy. Not sure if it's of any help to you: Fred's Blog – Fr3d.org – Using Group Policy Preferences to control multiple BGinfo scripts
