Bginfo not updating
So it looks to me that the WMI property is not updated correctly.
I have 14 servers of about 300 that are not showing the correct boot up time.
BGInfo includes support for an array of built-in fields, referenced within angle brackets ( window stores BGInfo's built-in fields, all of which print on the desktop as part of the default configuration.
If you delete a field from the main area and then want to add it back, simply place the cursor in the main area in the location you want the field, select the field from the Fields list, and click Add.
On a more in-depth level, I am curious if anyone knows why BGInfo must open the "default desktop registry key" and what it is updating in the "logon desktop settings" (phrase in quotes taken from the original error message)? This seemed to then allow me to apply the settings without the Default Desktop registry key error.
BGInfo needs to update the registry to set a default login desktop for all RDP users.
I have noticed that some servers (windows Server 2003, 2008 R R2) return the Last Boot Up Time with a date in the year 2014 (250 days ago), while that I know for sure that the servers have been rebooted a couple of days ago within the Windows update cycle.
Running the very nice BGInfo tool to uniquely identify various computers.The tool automatically applies this configuration after 10 seconds unless you click somewhere in this window.The window lets you shape the text and data fields that the tool prints on the desktop.The tool runs on Windows NT 4.0 and later and Windows 95 and later.When you execute BGInfo for the first time, it displays the window that Figure 1 shows.
