CR: Installing CHARTrunner disables desktop wallpaper

Revision Date: 2005-09-19

Problem:

When installing CHARTrunner on some computers the desktop wallpaper may be disabled.

Solution:

This is a known side-effect of installing MDAC 2.5. (See Microsoft's technical note regarding this problem at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q268/0/62.ASP).

The leftover registry key that is referred to in the article runs the RunOnce.exe program which displays a small window saying "Windows is now setting up the following items" in the upper left corner of the desktop during startup/login. The following fix causes this window to no longer appear and also fixes the missing wallpaper problem.

Download and right-click on the rem_dlg.inf file and choose "Install". This INF file simply removes the mdac_runonce key from the registry of the affected computer.
