W2K System Properties Contact Info

By Arcidius ·
About a year ago I made changes to a computers system properties so it showed my company's logo and out IT staff contact information. The problem is, I've lost the documentation and can't find how to do it again. If anyone knows how to make these changes, can you please let me know?!

To add the manufacturer and support information you need to create two new files in the Windows system directly, normally "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM" for Windows 95, 98 and Me and "C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32" for Windows NT and 2000.
The first file is a text file called "OEMINFO.INI". To create the file open notepad and copy the template below, make any changes and save the file in the System directory.


Manufacturer=Your Company, Inc.
Model=Your Computer Model

[Support Information]
Line1=first line of support information
Line2=second line
Line3=third line
Line4=fourth line
LineN=nth line
; Create as many lines as you need by incrementing the Line number

The other file you need to create is a logo file. This is a standard Windows bitmap file (172 x 172 pixels), saved as "OEMLOGO.BMP" in the Windows System directory.

Once you have created both these files open System Properties from Control Panel and your company information and logo will be displayed. The details you entered in the [Support Information] section will show up when you click on the Support Information button.

Note: To display a logo you must create a 172x172 (pixel) bitmap image and save it as OEMLOGO.BMP in the Windows system directory.
