the ''info'' & ''backgrounds'' folders did not exist, the default image was just sitting in the ''oobe'' folder....so i created the said folders, placed the desired image in there along with the default, but it has not changed...

i must have taken a wrong turn.....

Hi Mitch,

I noticed that your background1680x1050.jpg file name has a extra dot at the end. Renaming it to remove it may help. If not, then you may need to use a lower resolution for the default image or background image file.

Hello Studiorat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Nope, it doesn't affect anything but the log on screen background image. The worst that would happen is that you would have a black blank log on screen instead if the image you set at the log on screen was not correct as per the tutorial.

Not sure what may be causing it, but if it continues, see if doing a Startup repair may help.

Hello Daniel,

It still works in the new RC and leaked 7127 build for me. Double check to see if you may have any typos, double file extensions in the name if file extensions were set to be hidden in Folder Option, and you might try a smaller screen resolution size for the backgroundDefault.jpg file.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,

I wrote yet another windows 7 logonUI wallpaper changer
This one is different from the others, because it asks admin rights only the first time you apply a wallpaper (and it also have a very nice 3d/WPF based UI)

Windows 7 Logon Background Changer (Julien-Manici.com)



Hope you'll like it.
