  • Hi Vaheedkp,

    Thanks for your post.

    Before further research the issue, you may try the following steps to narrow down the cause of the problem.

    1. Run RSOP.MSC on client, make sure the wallpaper policy was applied.
    2. If the policy was applied, check the permission of the wallpaper folder. Make sure Authenticated User has Read Permission.

    And make sure installing the related hotfix.

    The "Desktop Wallpaper" Group Policy setting is not applied in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

    Best Regards,

    Mary Dong
