Hello all I’m trying to create a batch file to run BGinfo at startup

One issue in our environment is that we use Group Policy to set the background and SCCM to deploy BGinfo,

I’ve found that if I use a timer delay on GBinfo I can get them to play nice however using the timer appears to force the countdown dialog box to appear even when using the /silent switch

The following command works just fine however I wish to hide the countdown window

C:\Bginfo Companyname.bgi /timer:40 /silent

Am I missing something ?

your best best is to make a batch file with a "ping -n 40000" command, then launch the bginfo companyname.bgi /timer:0 /silent ..etc

  • Good out of the box thinking I like it, To be honest I’m considering looking at other products either that or getting BGinto wrapped up into an MSI
