This project is read-only.



uapman is a simple command-line tool which grabs the thumbnailPhoto out of Active Directory for the currently logged-on User, and sets this as User Account Picture in Windows Vista and above (2008 / 7 / 2008 R2).
It was tested on Windows 7 32-bit, 2008 64-bit, 2008 R2.


The commandline parameters are:
  • -verbose
    • Outputs some logging to the commandline
  • -default
    • If the User does not have a Photo in the thumbnailPhoto AD Attribute, it will set the "default.bmp" as User Account Picture
    • Make sure you change the default.bmp picture, else you will end up with my face on your screen :) :)

No parameter will just execute silently without setting a default picture.


You can use uapman as a login script using Active Directory GPO's (or other means).
Make sure that uapman is run under the correct user account. It does NOT need Administrator rights.
