How to Set Animated Gifs as Desktop Wallpaper

I can't seem to figure out how to set an animated gif as my desktop wallpaper in windows 7 so that it will work properly. Normally it just treats it as a still image, though it used to work on windows XP. Any programs out there that will make it work or any way to change this without the use of programs?

Apparently it is not possible to apply a .gif image as desktop wallpaper in windows 7 . You can try Download DreamScene Activator , which enables .mpg and .wmv movies as wallpaper.
