Dynamically display the PVS environment detail on users desktop with BGINFO

I want all PVS servers to dynamically display their environment on the desktop when a users logs into the desktop.

This can be achieved by:

1) adding a new ‘personality’ variable to each device in PVS

2) scripting the import of the variables from the c:personality.ini file to the windows registry

3) setting BGINFO to display the registry information at each user logon.

Process:

1) Edit the properties of the Target Device > Personality Tab > and Add your variables

PVS_Personality_variable

2) Script the import with VB and run as a computer startup script in the GPO

Set objShel = CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
objShel.Run “C:Progra~1CitrixProvis~1GetPer~1.exe Environment /r=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMYCOMPANYPVSEnv”

3) Download BGINFO from sysinternals and setup the new desktop display
