  • WinXP SP2 MUI Background white

    'Hello,

    I have installed WinXP Sp2 with MUI Dutch. Now the background should be blue because the background none is selected. But of course of the MUI . the name of none is translated into the word "geen". Now XP cannot find a desktop bmp Because of that the background is not selected and is showing white.
    Is this a bug? and does anyone know what to do to solve this?

    please help

    I've googled it and I cant find any mention of it.

    Have you downloaded the latest version of the MUI?

    Have you not just got your background colour set to white? If 'none' is selected then it doesn't look for a wallpaper called none.bmp or am I just not understanding what your saying?

      I've not the latest MUI. Just the version from the customer.
      And I've not set the background color to white. None is not selected. There is nothing selected. That is the problem the OS is expecting the value none But the MUI has translated it in Geen.

        I have a workaround:
        in the registry I've found the following
        [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
        "Wallpaper"="(none)"

        I will change this value in (Geen) for the default user
        That will fix the problem

        thx for your help

          There's a difference between Wallpaper and Background color.

            The Background Color (No the Wallpaper Itself) and the color that you found in Appearence ==> Advanced>>>>> Desktop>>>>Color are the same.

            But what about if i wanna change this for all users via registry, GPO or other Thing??

                Or do I read wrong or do I not understood..

                In my case I don't want activate a Background, Neither the active Desktop.

                Imagine that do I Need this
                HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors (this one is for the logon screen)

                but for the login screen.

                It would be a great option that affects all users so when I set background (0 0 0), everybody get that after the login.
