ZEN Works 95 Desktop Preferences

By jkatz ·
I am attempting to set up a set of policies (i.e. 95 Desktop Preferences, 95 User System Policies), and the such and associate it with particular users and groups of users. I have been able to set up the 95 User System Policies pretty easily and get them to work successfully, but when I attempt to set the "95 Desktop Preferences" (in particular specifying "No Wallpaper" or/and "No Screen Saver"), the wallpaper and screen saver are not set to "none" as I have specified as part of the policy package.

Only after I specify a wallpaper file (i.e. BMP file), does the screen saver portion of the policy work and sets the wallpaper to that file. This is how I know that the policy is at least being recognized.

Why is it that when I set the display options for either "Background" or/and "Screen Saver" to the "None" option for each in the policy package, it does not work (I still get wallpaper or/and screen savers that were set prior to the policy package being implemented).

Am I doingsomething wrong or am I not setting something correctly? Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

I've seen this before and if I'm correct the tick box is grey not white with a black tick. If this is the case tick the box, then tick it off then tick it back on again. What happens is the grey mean the policy is not in effect completely, whereasif it a white box with a black tick mark it should work. You may also want to have a look at the registry entries.

This submission is not for points.
I more or less agree with Answer 1. A Tick/Check means the Policy is turned on, no Check means it's turned off, while greyed/shaded means no change, i.e. leave the setting alone for the workstation.
