But it is not configured for the display that you want.
You should start Bg Info from the Utilities folder – as seen below in the Aero desktop and make sure to save your configuration to c:\utils\
Bg Info – I am a great fan of the Sys Internals tool Bg Info.
I use it all over the place, especially in Virtual Machines.
Using BGInfo is very simple: open it and click the Apply button, and your desktop will have a ton of system information plastered all over it right away.
It is a little different than in the past but I still need my Bg Info info screen displayed so this is what I figured out. Now we have Bg Info configured to be started from the Utilities folder on the Aero desktop, but also to be automatically executed at log in.
They were functional if you went to their folder but their icon was not seen in the Utilities folder as seen in the screen above. This will work for the administrator user, plus when you deploy this from template and use sysprep it will make sure that this config is part of the default user and so new users will get it too.
The configuration of Bg Info when it is working is relatively simple and so I will let you deal with it. I hope that this helps, and if you have questions or comments please do not hesitate to let me know.
is an “unofficial” program published by Microsoft that will display basic information about the Windows workstation or server on background image.
It is somewhat unofficial because Microsoft does not promote the program as official software.
