Win7 .theme-file Logon-Wallpaper?

Hi folks,

I tried the search function and google but couldn't find anything useful...

I changed some .theme files from Win7 theme packs and there was an entry

Code:
SetLogonBackground=1
and I wonder, if it could be possible to change the logon wallpaper within the
.theme, as easy, as the desktop wallpaper...

Does anyone know how this works? from google I know that it's possible somehow...


Thx 4 help

Are you just trying to change the logon screen background?
If you are trying to do this by tweaking code then I don't have a clue

There are plenty of links on Dr. Google for altering the
registry settings for that though.

Here are some links:
Log On Screen - Change
Windows 7 Lets you Change the Logon Background Image - The Winhelponline Blog
Windows 7 Tip - Change the login screen background - YouTube
How to Change the Logon Screen on Windows 7 - TechSpot Guides

Edit:\
OK- I think I get what your trying to do now but to be honest
it's still not my forte. Did you come across this info?:

sandkorn1978, you got it other way around. This entry tells Windows to change to default or keep old one Logon background. You CAN NOT install a new Logon background simply by applying a theme file (Only if you will patch default background beforehand).

that's what I've already done for my Windows, so I know this way very good...


I couldn't find the themes from M$-page... Someone told that there are themes with that function, but wasn't able to tell wich ones that were...

I'm not even sure if it's in the .theme-file, so it could be any way to get it changed...
But I think it'll get changed by one click with the complete theme...

I'll stay on it, so if I get a clue, i'll post it here
