Set Wallpaper

In all the examples i have come across they use SystemParameterInfo() to set the wallpaper
but apparently that just doesnt work on my OS (Win M.E.)

i know how to set it in the registry but i just need a way to update it. anyone one know how?

  • I could be wrong but i think if you change the registry mid run on a computer you need to restart the computer to have the effects take place... i dont know how to do that in c++ but i think that is more the direction you should go in.

    end if[/code]
    So... How long do you think you'll be waiting?

    Do you have Active Desktop enabled? The above method won't work in that situation. But I don't have WinME, so maybe even with Active Desktop disabled it still won't work on that platform (but I'd be surprised).

    Anyway, a really good example was posted a couple months ago...it worked with or without Active Desktop being enabled. If you use the search function of the board, I'm sure you'll find it.
