Customised wallpaper to display PC config like IP, ServiceDesk Version, etc

Version 7

    GREAT TIPS FOR MACHINE your Server to display on a dynamic wallaper info such as; Service Desk version, ip, hostname, doamin, etc.

     

    You can  display on your desktop most of your PC configuration (i.e.: computer  name, ip configuration, user login, etc) .

     

    To do  so you can use an free utility name BGinfo. It was originally created by  systernal but now part of Microsoft.

     

    It is available  on the following URL:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897557.aspx

         or from as a direct link

    http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-9742/edit?containerType=14&container=2154

     

    I attach a screenshot of my desktop to illustrate  the benefits of such utility (see file attach name desktop-preview.JPG).

     

    * Step to install BGinfo:

     

    1.)  Downlaod the bginfo by going to following url:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897557.aspx

    2.) Save it a location  on your PC where you will need to keep.

    3.) Now  JUST RUN bginfo.exe and personalise the details you like to display to your need.

         Tips:

         You can also display LanDesk Software version. (i.e.: Service desk version can be display too. Just run BGinfo.bgi to edit and add a custom field pointing to      the console.exe C:\Program  Files\LANDesk\LANDesk ServiceDesk\console.exe and select Version  info for a file)

     

    Done.
