    Thanks for ur reply..

    GPP is a new feature. So by default Window XP does not support this feature. You have to install hotfix to work Window XP Client Side Extensions.

            Copying Wallpaper

    The Group Policy is not applied here (check above). Did you configure any fiilter option for this GPO?

  • Hi Prashant,

    Thanks for ur reply.

    The thing which you had mention is part of User Setting Policy.

    I had created this policy for Computer Setting. As you can see from the gpresult that the policy is applied.

    Below is the part of gpresult. which shows that copying wallpaper has been applied.

     COMPUTER SETTING :--

        Applied Group Policy Objects
        -----------------------------
            Default Domain Policy_GP
            Disable enumeration of SIDs_GP
            Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile_GP
            Disable Guest a/c_GP
            Interactive Logon_GP
            Rename Administrator_GP
            Dump file creation_GP
            Copying Wallpaper

    Please advice?

    As i have applied this policy for Computer Setting, so it has been filter out in User Setting policy.

    What do u think?


    Thanks & Regards,

  • OK,.

    Check the settings of Copying wallpapers. Take the screen shot and post it here.

    also .

    On Xp clients check any Group policy realted Events are getting generated.

    Note - By Default , client system takes 90 minutes to process the GPO.

    Where FROM do you copy the files? I assume it's a server, so double
    check that authenticated users (or at least domain computers) have read
    access to the share and the underlying file system...

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
