You might look at using Item-level targeting in Group Policy Preferences
to populate the registry key.


Actually, there is a control panel\desktop key for the computer, but I
believe that controls the wallpaper you see when no one is logged on.

Subject: [gptalk] Screen Saver ADM feasibility


Hi all,


Having never written an ADM before (note: Win 2003/XP env), I was
wondering about feasibility of writing custom ADM to apply a screen
saver to computer side of a GPO so that we can target computer objects.


- We don't want to turn on loopback for standard end user machines

- We can't use the user side of the policy because client only wants it
applied to certain machines (but large groups of them)  :- (


I'm guessing the tough part (maybe impossible?) is specifying the end
user's registry key.  I imagine there's no such thing as the "Control
Panel\Desktop" subkey for computers right?  Anybody else been down this
road?  I'm already primed to tell customer to adjust their expectations
