Wallpaper Policy Not working XP

    Question

  • Hi,

    I applied one Desktop wallpaper policy through Group Policy. But the policies is applied in some machine only. After i checked rsop.msc to find policy is applied correctly or not, Policy is Applied Correctly and I did gpupdate /force after that also not working. After i try to take My Domain Sharing Folder (Which is created for Wallpaper) not coming It is saying "Network Path was not Found" 

    I tried to restart the Workstation Services. Restarted Perfectly.

    I think because of this only policy not getting Applied. Can you please help on this.

    May thanks in advance.

  • Which os you are using as Domain and client os. if you have installed srv2008 or 2008 R2 as Domain and client os ix XP SP3 then you have to install client side extensions on XP machines to take effect of group policy.

     Use below link to download "Client Side Extensions"
