Hi,

I have GPO (user configuration) where a script is executed at logon to set the lockscreen picture on our Windows 10 PRO machines. It works - the lockscreen picture is set at the 1. logon. But at the following logons when the script is executed, i just get a black screen with a white mouse cursor.

Removing the script solves the issue, but any idea why the below script causes a black screen after the 1. logon?

@Echo off

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PersonalizationCSP

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PersonalizationCSP /v LockScreenImagePath /t REG_SZ /d "c:\windows\web\Screen\pic1.png" /f

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PersonalizationCSP /v LockScreenImageUrl /t REG_SZ /d "c:\windows\web\Screen\pic1.png" /f

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PersonalizationCSP /v LockScreenImageStatus /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Regards
Robert
