I see how to deploy SSO in a domain with Group Policies.
I see how to deploy it on a StandAlone PC for a user.
How do you deploy it on a Standalone PC with multiple user accounts without logging in as each individual user to edit that user's HKCU registry settings?
I was hoping to use the local PC's Group Policy (gpedit.msc) but I don't see the screensaver settings under control panel/display.

Surely this must have been accomplished before?

Great piece of software BTW!

Wow! The sound of crickets around here is deafening! I found out how to do this on a Win 7 Pro PC using Local Group Policy (GPEDIT.msc). It is under Local Computer Policy/User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Control Panel/Personalization.

If you do registry changes under HKCU/Software/Policies it will only apply to the current user in Win7. Apparently it used to work but a security update borked it. It may work in XP though. You can refer to this thread if you want to try it:

So what are these ADMX files the readme talks about???
