I've seen posts about this, but I still don't know how to stop ScreenConnect from disabling client's desktop wallpaper.

I understand the performance hit, but we have a requirement for this.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can use the app.config file setting "HideWallpaperOnConnect" to control this behavior. When set to false, the Guest's wallpaper will no longer be hidden when you connect into the remote machine.

More info on the app.config file and how to create/propagate it can be found here.

Also PS, I saw you created a second thread asking the same question, I'm going to delete that one just to be consistent.
