    Desktop wallpaper not changed on domain joined users


    Hi
    In our domain we have a policy to change the wallpaper every month. The change is done from server side.
    Now wallpaper of most of users is changed but for few it remains the old wallpaper.

    For example I have windows 8 and mine is not updated.
    I also have tried gpupdate /force. No luck.

    This issue is only with few systems running windows xp 7 and 8.

    These systems only show the last months wallpaper not the one updated.

    Also these windows are fully updated as of now.

    There is a hotfix for this problem although it's not really working for some.
    The "Desktop Wallpaper" Group Policy setting is not applied in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

    There are also some registry adjustments you can make which can help but they need to be deployed by the GPO, the last post in the following link explains what you need to do.

    But That hotfix doesn't applies to Windows 8.

    There isn't a hotfix for Windows 8 although you did mention that windows 7 machines also have the problem.

    The hotfix alone may not fix the problem. Use the registry settings in the last link, last post which is about the only other solution I can find.
