    BGInfo: Error creating the output bitmap file

    Error creating the output bitmap file
    C:\WINDOWS\BGInfo.bmp:
    Access is denied

    Please ensure the path exists and you have permission to write to it.

    The workstations are using this quite happily but my netbooks dont want to apart from admin. What's been missed?

    I'm guessing you have a script that is copying that bmp file from a network location onto the local machine?

    or do you have the bitmap already on the local machine? if so then you might need to give the network users (staff users / student users) local admin rights or something similar so they can write to the folder in question. Edit: DO NOT GIVE FULL PERMISSIONS TO WINDOWS FOLDER! *Thanks Synack*

    Logon as an administrator, Start > Run > MMC

    File > Add/Remove Snap-in > Add > Local Users and Groups > Add > Finish > Close > OK

    Expand Local Users and Groups. Select Groups > Administrators, then add Domain Users.

    Now try logging on as a normal user.

    You can do it from remotely from one machine, so long as the others are switched on, again via MMC. In future you can perform this to your master images, so after Sysprep BGInfo will work as it should

    EEK, No, Bad!!

    You just need to give them permission to that particular file not the entire machine. Just right click on the file, properties and change the security to allow domain users full control.

    Doing it the other way gives every single user full control of the machine which is bad in a school.
