"Feature" of PE 2005?

Recommended Posts

I am the (not so) proud new owner of PE 2005 and the very first thing that hit me is that it doesn't shrink the wallpaper by default. I have an IBM 8305-V3U that I just cannot get the video drivers to install on. I have the same problem with PE 1.2 and 1.5 (I've tried every driver I could find and none work - it's got to be the hardware). The annoying thing is that my wallpaper is 800x600. In the previous versions of PE, it shrank the wallpaper to fit the screen. Not so in 2005.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to look at or check for?

TIA,

-DaG

Upon further review, it seems that the previous versions of PE had a string value in the HKEYCURRENT\Control Panel\Desktop called WallpaperStyle=2 and the newer version does not. ANy hints on how I can get that into the registry BEFORE the machine boots? I'd have to modify the regkeys before I build it, no? ANy suggestions?

For anyone interested, to remedy this, enter the following line in the WINPEDEF.INF file before you build your image:

HKCU,"Control Panel\desktop", "WallPaperStyle", REG_EXPAND_SZ, "2"

Cheers,
