Yeah I know, I just find that exporting the key is an easy way to create the reg file I want to edit. I just edit out the keys I'm not interested in, leaving the stuff I want to change or import back in.

I finally found some free time to play with this unfortunately it didn't work.
This is the reg file I used.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"Wallpaper"="C:\\Windows\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Asus\\Wallpaper.jpg"

If I run it manually, log off and then back on, the wallpaper does change to what I want. The reg file is in the sources\$OEM$\$$\setup\scripts folder on the DVD. My OEM info reg file is also in that folder and it works perfectly. The wallpapers are in the sources\$OEM$\$$\setup\web\wallpaper\Asus folder on the DVD and do end up in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Asus\ when the install is done. I guessing its not running the Wallpaper reg file or it overnights it again sometime during the install? That or I'm not modifying the correct reg key?

Hmm,

You might try a test by placing the .reg file in the hidden system folder for located below for the all users Startup folder to see if that may work.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

If I put it there it will run every time windows starts up though and I might still have to log off and back on again for it to work. I appreciate the suggestion though. I'm starting to think I might have to do it though an unattended install file which means using thw WAIK. If thats the case I may just give up. At least for now anyway. Thanks again for the suggestions though.
