The problem with changing the welcome screen is that you also need to adjust a few other things as well. Like the trim lines, and the other UI graphics. I would need to create a whole interface customization screen just for the XP welcome screen, so I opted to not support it instead. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it would have taken much too long to create and support.

You might want to try StarDock logon studio. It is a one-size-fits-all solution for logon screens. They make it look easy by simply always plopping the elements in one position. Might be a go-to idea to make this work on XP...?

@sfwrtr: This is an excellent solution for people using the Windows XP "welcome screen", but for everyone else I think DisplayFusion has all the bases covered. :)

Pardon my ineffective use of language. I was suggesting this might give you ideas how to make DF welcomeXP! :evil:

LOL, I see! :) I thought about doing this when designing the logon changer, but decided to keep it simple. And I hate to offend all the XP users out there, but it's 2 versions out-of-date now, and would require a significant amount of effort to development and support, sorry. :(
