AD 2012 Black Screen when apply Wallpaper GPO

    Question

  • Hello,

    We are trying to apply a Wallpaper GPO with an image on desktop workstations .

    In some workstations image appears correctly , but in most computer after we apply the GPO only changes to a black screen .

    We AD2012 and workstations are Windows 7.

    We have done several tests, eg changing the image format from BPM to JPG, we made tests with permissions on folders and also with registry keys .

    I would appreciate any advice.

    Thanks.

    Manuel

  • If you copy the wall paper down to the local machine and then set the GPO to look for the local wallpaper, does that work?
