Hi,
first I will say, that I am using this tool over many years from Windows xp to Server 2016 or Windows 10. I like it and I have never seen an other tool which could replace it.
 
On newer os i.e. Windows 10 Aniversary I get the error message on the logfile
"An error  occured while attempting to set the new Desktop settings
Please ensure the current user has rights to Change Desktop Settings:
Dieser Vorgang erfordert eine interaktive Arbeitsstation".
 
  • I am using the Task scheduler to start BgInfo.
  • The logon user is member of the Administrator Group and has no Limitation, there are no Group policy limitations.
  • The Task Scheduler Option "Use highest priority" is set, so BgInfo should be startet with Administrator Elevation.
  • BgInfo is started from the Folder c:\Program Files (x86)\Tools\BgInfo
  • As Location for the Output Bitmap I use "User's temporary files Directory"

An Interactive call of the same commandline as used in Task Scheduler succeeds.

What could be the matter of this strange Problem?
Regards Friedhelm

This maybe the same problem as 2012R2 and Windows 8.1 had. Try turning off UAC. -WS

I can try it, to test if there is a conjunction between the problem and the UAC.
 
But turning off the UAC is  no solution !!!
This is not allowed on much machines by Domain policies.
 
So what else can I do?

I agree that turning off UAC is not the solution but once you find out if that is the problem. Then you can work on a solution to leave UAC on and have the software work.. -WS
