This is an autoit utility to silently randomize your desktop wallpaper by selecting
a picture from %Windir%\Web\Wallpaper folder.
It was an inspiration from a post here. I improved the script to accommodate more logic & features.
Support jpg, jpeg, bmp & png pictures only. Will only set wallpaper to "Center" mode if image's width fall
below 70% of your screen width. Most of the time it is using "Stretch" mode.
If your picture ratio is same as your screen size, it is "Stretch" mode too.
Will not interfere with your theme(s).

Access thru Start ->All Programs -> Accessories->Random Wallpaper Changer or Desktop shortcut

Includes 5 randomly selected wallpaper to get you, hopefully inspired to randomize frequently. (Source)
Also include to randomize a wallpaper during ROE stage via a batch file.

If you do not have ROE items, will still randomize your wallpaper. U will see it during creating desktop...

Since you are already using autoit for the image, you could use it for the install as well. install the items and run them from within the script, then set your own progress and window and just splash it over the runonceex box (or show an avi).

I thought of that too, something like that, by modifying the autoit script. (using simpler code, w/o adding on existing code)
I also thought of using some kind of registry tweak without script...
Nevertheless, still need to test further... and see how it goes.
Thanks for the suggestion :)

This is an interesting autoit code!

Guess what, I found it, using registry tweak only!

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors]
;"Background"="58 110 165" ; default blue
"Background"="192 220 122" ;greenish

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"Wallpaper"=""
