    Presumably this isn't what you are specifying?

    What's the path of the wallpaper you are entering into the GPO setting?

    If using active desktop you will need a util to refresh the background else sometimes it does not load correctly.

    That's not going to work then. Unless your users are domain admins, they probably won't have access to the C$ share.

    Re: Set desktop background

    I was wondering that

    I have shared the folder and changed the GPO to: \\admindc1\BHCCBackGround$\BHCCbackgroundimage.JPG

    Still no luck.

    Re: Set desktop background

    I find it doesn't work with mandatory profiles. I had it working once, not worked for years though. No idea why so I just set it in the mandatory profile instead these days (fyi they have to be bmp with mandatory due to a bug)

    Re: Set desktop background

    Ours are working OK the settings we have enabled in GPO are...

    Enable Active Desktop
    Disable All Items
    Prohibit Changes
    Active Desktop Wallpaper

    Cheers
