Enterprise Configuration

1. To deploy Enplug ScreenSaver to multiple computers, you can include silent install and the Content URL parameters from the command line:

Enplug-Screen-Saver-Installer.exe /S /url="https://player.enplug.com/#/display/abcdef/123456" 

Be sure to replace the example URL shown above using your specific content URL.

2. To lock users from editing the URL, but still allow them to edit their screensaver settings, include the following parameter during installation:

/lockUrl

Note: To unlock the URL, run the installer again without the "/lockUrl" parameter

3. Use Group Policy to prevent users from changing their screensaver settings, once Enplug ScreenSaver is set:

  • Select Windows key + R to open the Run command box
  • Type gpedit.msc and hit Enter to open the Local Group Policy Editor
  • Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization
  • Double-click on the Prevent changing screen saver setting in the right pane
  • In the properties window, choose the Enabled option and then click OK.
  • Now, if a user tries to change the screensaver, they will receive the error: Your system administrator has disabled launching of the Display Settings Control Panel.
