screen saver, 3dtext settings via group policy

Post by NewS2ker v » Wed, 01 Nov 2006 02:13:33


I have located the group policy that defines the screen saver used on client
systems. I have defined the screen saver as the 3D Text (sstext3d.scr)
screen saver. Using group policies, how would I define the text that would be
displayed in the 3D Text screen saver?

With a selfmade ADM template, that manipulates:

Import -> mark "adm templates" -> View -> Filtering
uncheck "show only fully managed" ...

Thanks for the response. I'm sure I did this in school, but I'm going to
have to get the books out to help
me with creating a selfmade ADM template OR Maybe with a little help from you
I can work through it.
How would I begin to create the template?

Thanks for the link. I'm testing implementation on a test client/server. I
have a some additional questions:

I would like to set when the screen saver starts. In "Software\Microsoft\
Screensavers\Text3D"
I see DisplayTime. Is this it? ... How do you find out what each setting
represent? How do you know the setting increments, ie. is it seconds, minutes?

The link you sent doesn't show all variables in the registry. I didn't find
anything searching microsoft on "displaytime" that was relevant.

Also, I'm not sure what you listed the following in reference to (especially
the mark adm templates):
Import -> mark "adm templates" -> View -> Filtering
uncheck "show only fully managed" ...

Thanks again!
