Windows 7: How to specify photos in screen saver for all users?

How to specify photos in screen saver for all users?


Looking for assistance in distributing the GPO for all users, using the Windows Live Photo screen saver. I have the .scr file set in the GPO under User Config>Admin Template>Control Panel>Personalization, to which it is enabled and the executable is given. I am able to set policy to pull from photos for the Admin account, but I am having trouble directing this same action with all other users of the local machine.

I believe I was able to locate the encrypted keys for the photos in the registry for HKCU, but unsure of where to or how to direct this screen saver to those photos in a global library that all have access to.

Has anyone else experienced this issue as well? If so, what steps would I look to remediate this?
