Morning all,

Quick one really, we have a lock down system and use policies on the network.

I need to create a MSI that pushes out a screensaver logon.scr and for the MSI to turn off the power management system. So the monitor doesnt turn off.

What is the best way to do this, as at the moment I have one msi for the user side and one for the machine side. The user side has the reg setting and the machine side has the scr file.

Cheers all.

G'day Gunner:

Well for pushing out the screensaver just do the following:

1. Copy the scr file to Windows directory
2. Goto the registry details and create the following keys
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
Key Type: String
KeyName: ScreenSaveActive
DataValue: 1

HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
Key Type: String
KeyName: ScreenSaverIsSecure
DataValue: 1

HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
Key Type: String
KeyName: ScreenSaveTimeOut
DataValue: 600(this could be anything basically the time you need to keep)

HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop
Key Type: String
KeyName: SCRNSAVE.EXE
DataValue: [#yourscrrensaver.scr]

This is just for pushing the screensaver, however for power management I am still trying. Hope this would help you somehow.
