    This can also be done with a lil reg entry then sign off for setting to be saved within system file. Lil trick but works without any modding of the dll.

    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization" /v ForceStartBackground /t REG_DWORD /d "00000020" /f >nul
    The number 20 is for what ever your wallpaper is. If you wish another then you will have to adjust reg setting accordingly.
    You must logoff afterwards for new setting to be saved within system file.

    Note: System must be activated before using this reg entry or win10 customization's are disabled.

    Thanks so much, I'll test with this key

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization]
    "ForceStartBackground"=dword:00000020
    but I did not understand for the "20"

    You will have to replace what ever the standard image is with the one you want. Then apply reg entry and logoff. You might have to play with it till you get it right. Was a pita for myself to get wallpaper to show. Note, you will need to take ownership of image before you can replace it.

    Ok, the number (20) is the wallpaper ID

    I use the default wallpaper for win10, img0 in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows and I want this image to the logon screen
    I have to put 0 or 1 ?

    Take ownership of the img0 then rename to backup (img0.bak). Insert your image in same location but with its name img0. Make sure extension is the same as original. Run registry command to install the reg key. Logoff and back on and you are done. Easier from oobe mode but no third party app is needed to edit the dll file. This will even work if you disable the lock screen so no repercussions should arise.

    Thanks for your explanation

    If I understand (sorry for my english)
    I rename the file img0.jpg => img0_back.jpg
    I put the image I want in the C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows folder and I renames it in img0.jpg
    And I created the registry key with 1 for the number

    Good ?

    Do not change the value of reg file I shared or failure will occur. Your replacing the same image I did in the multi oem-retail project. Leave value as it is.

    I tested with this key

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization]
    "ForceStartBackground"=dword:00000014
    It worked yesterday for reboot, but this morning at the boot, it was the blue screen (default)
    But it's good for reboot
