Need help with setting some defaults for all users in Windows 7...


Recommended Posts

C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg

yes I do that also and replace it everywhere on the drive. You'll find it in several more places

4 places on a 64 bit and then you can also replace

AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg with same.

Do you have a workaround for the "TrustedInstaller" permissions issue, or do you just mount an image and overwrite it in there?

mount and write, may need to take ownership

Hi,

just a question: did you delete the profile of your test user after you changed the defualt user profile? The new values for a default user will not be applied to existing profiles.

Best regards, Nils.

If anyone is interested I found an excellent solution for this dilemma here:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/mdt/thread/54f71ff7-81b6-4dff-9fb1-845a2efb1026

Aaaaand here is the script I wrote to do the work for me (with help from that post):

@echo off

:: Set script execution directory
set _thisdir=%~dp0

:: Take ownership of original
TakeOwn.exe /F %SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg

:: Replaces acls with default inherited acls
icacls %SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg /reset

:: Rename original
RENAME %SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg imgX.jpg

:: Run copy operation
XCOPY "%_thisdir%Wallpaper\*.*" "%SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper\Windows" /D /E /C /R /I /K /Y

Hope this makes it easier on the next person!
