Windows 7: Set Windows wallpaper to file on server

Set Windows wallpaper to file on server


My organization has more than 40 Windows 7 computers that I need to take care of. I'd like to configure them to get their desktop wallpaper from a remote location on a server, so that when I want to change the wallpaper, I only have to change the file on the server. Does anybody know how to do that from the registry?
