  • Hi Guilherme Teles,

    You could add your JPG under the below registry


    There are 2 ways to achieve this , one way is to set this using your custom gina.dll  under

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon


    The second option is to set under the following location .
    HKEY_USERS\Default\controlpanel\Desktop

  • Hi Guilherme,

     

    If the OS on your client is XP, you can change the logon background to a bitmap file.

     

    1. Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

     

    2. In the details pane (right-side), double-click the Wallpaper string value item.

     

    3. In Value data , type the path and name of the picture or background, and then click OK .

     

    Note: Make sure the picture is a Bitmap.

     

    Then, you have changed the logon Background. This will take effect when you logoff.

     

    If it is Windows 7, you can change the logon background to a jpg file. Please refer to:

    Meanwhile, if you want this jpg file to be opened automatically after startup, you can use logon scripts.
