GP custom screen saver


J

JR

I currently have a domain wide Group Policy that uses a screen saver to lock
workstations. The screen saver is the windows default screensaver. Management
now wants a company screen saver to use instead of the default. How can I
achieve this goal?

Running win2003 domain.

Hello JR,

What kind of screensaver, a .scr file or .exe? If it is a .scr copy it via
startup script to C:\Windows\System32 and you can specify the path to it
via GPO. Maybe also with some other screensaver, but we need more info about
it.

Best regards

Well I created a screen saver with a 3rd party utility as an .exe. You then
run it and it creates a directory and throws a .scr file in the system32
direstory. However, Do I need to install this on a server then in the screen
saver GP point it to use the new "test.scr" file? will it push that out to
all the other user systems? or do I need to edit an exsisting windows default
..scr file to use for the domain GP ??

Make sence ?

Do that in two kind of steps. First create a computer startup script
that would copy the screen saver (scr) into the right directory (if it
doesn't exist already) and second, specify the custom screen saver for
the users.

cheers,
