    BgInfo v4.14 Good idea in a school?

    Hi just found this program on the internet and i was just wondering if this is a good idea for a small primary school to get a new wallpaper and all the infomation about the workstations.

    With me not having alot of time at the school is this program easy to install over a windows server 2003 network

    cheers

    Yeah really easy, Just create the .bgi file and pop it in netlogon with the exe and your bitmap and use it as a startup script. And hey presto!!!

    Dont forget to change the location of the file it creates to the users temp directory.

    Then all you have to do is put a script like


    \\serverpath\Bginfo.exe \\serverpath\nameoffile.bgi /TIMER:0 /SILENT


    In you log in script for the user and computer

    Good luck

    Yes, I use it at every school. Easily customisable!
