John,
I wanted to test your Logon Desktop settings implementation; however the procedure errors out.
I currently have a logon desktop image set via registry and C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder.
I go to DF settings Windows Logon; then check Allow DF to manage....; then select an image; click applly. I get elevation prompt then the error (image attached). W7 Ent x64

Can you enable the Debug logging option on the Troubleshooting tab and send me the log file after trying to apply the Logon background? The log should have a more detailed error. Thanks!

Have you had a chance to create the log file yet? I don't normally like to rush people, but I am holding back the final release to make sure this isn't a show-stopping bug. Thanks!

Jon,
I attach log. On this test used different image; same result - same error.

Sorry Pete, this is the information from the Troubleshooting page, but I need the complete log. While you are on the Troubleshooting tab, just click the "Open Log Location" button. Thanks!

Can you use regedit to find out what the permissions for this registry key is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background

It seems that you don't have access to write to this location (even when elevated), which could be caused by a domain policy. Thanks!

Jon - well tracked down, you are right! I had forgotten I modified the permissions on this key.
I had done this to prevent changes to the logon desktop background when changing a theme (changing a theme always reverts to the default logon background).
Sorry for the trouble

No problem at all. I've updated the error handling in this case so that DisplayFusion will tell you that it failed to access that key. That way people can troubleshoot the issue and have an idea of what is going on.
