the reason why the wallpaper was not following the roaming profile is
because i was not using bitmaps...

check out this post:

i am also quoting the last sentence on this web page:

"There appears to be a problem where .jpg wallpaper does not appear to roam
properly.  However, the registry settings are being updated properly.  Usually,
if you go to the desktop tab after right clicking for properties on the
desktop, you will find the proper wallpaper file is actually selected.
"OK" will cause it to display."

i have tested this and can verify the problem. it would be nice if someone
could figure out a little hack to this to make it work properly.
