Forums Operating Systems Windows Server 2008 Wish List Progress Custom Logonscreen Background Re: Re: Custom Logonscreen Background


I have done some research on this issue in the past as I would love to use LogonStudioVista with x64 WS2008 but have failed so far.

I think what you may be running up a gainst is WIndows Resource Protection (, which in short prevents any changes to a protected list of installed programs, which this dll is one of. I have experienced replacing the file (even under safe boot), and finding the system quickly replaces it back! You need to use a particular set of APIs, that for example Windows Installer uses, to make a file change stick.

I concluded to myself this was the issue, there in fact may be even more robust protection under Windows Server 2008 x64 but I can’t remember now as its been 6 months since I researched this.

Good luck if this helps you make some progress!
