How To Add OEM Information In Vista System Properties

Recommended Posts

We all know about OEM information in system properties under Windows XP.

There are OEMLogo.bmp (96x96) for OEMLOGO and OEMInfo.ini for OEM information used to add under windows XP

Copy both files under X:\Windows\System32\

But In Windows Vista, there's a new method to add OEM information in the System properties.

All work is done now through Windows registry instead of using OEMinfo.ini file.

Here is the code you should merge in the registry: (Always back up your registry!!)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation]
@=""
"Manufacturer"="Hewlett-Packard"
"Model"="Compaq Presario SR1610IL"
"Logo"="C:\\Windows\\system32\\oemlogo.bmp"
"SupportPhone"="1-600-114772 (Toll free), 0124-2346992 (Toll Number)"
"SupportURL"="http://www.hp.com/in/support"
"SupportHours"="9 AM to 9 PM (Mon-Sat)"

Here We can see that there is no need to put OEMlogo.bmp file in X:\Windows\System32.

We can put the file anywhere 'cause the varialbe can be set in the reg code..

Hi N1K, I don't know how to do this, could you guide me, please? I think that I have to write a REG file, it is correct? I'm not sure.

Thanks.

Correct, edit this code as you like, create oemlogo.bmp and copy it in the location specified in the code above.

Now, copy and paste this code into notepad and save it as .reg file.

Run the saved .reg file to merge this code into registry..

It's correct for XP x32 version. But how about XP x64?

Thanks
