Desktop Image changer is not working as a windows service!

Jan 30 2014 6:47 AM
Hi,
 
I am working on an windows service application, which need to change the desktop of the machine for each 1 minute. 
 
For changing the desktop background I have used the below code and it is working from console application.
public sealed class Wallpaper
{
Wallpaper() { }
const int SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER = 20;
const int SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE = 0x01;
const int SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE = 0x02;
[DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
static extern int SystemParametersInfo(int uAction, int uParam, string lpvParam, int fuWinIni);
public enum Style : int
{
Tiled,
Centered,
Stretched
}
public static void Set(Uri uri, Style style)
{
System.IO.Stream s = new System.Net.WebClient().OpenRead(uri.ToString());
System.Drawing.Image img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(s);
string tempPath = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath(), "wallpaper.bmp");
img.Save(tempPath, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
RegistryKey key = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(@"Control Panel\Desktop", true);
if (style == Style.Stretched)
{
key.SetValue(@"WallpaperStyle", 2.ToString());
key.SetValue(@"TileWallpaper", 0.ToString());
}
if (style == Style.Centered)
{
key.SetValue(@"WallpaperStyle", 1.ToString());
key.SetValue(@"TileWallpaper", 0.ToString());
}
if (style == Style.Tiled)
{
key.SetValue(@"WallpaperStyle", 1.ToString());
key.SetValue(@"TileWallpaper", 1.ToString());
}
SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER,
0,
tempPath,
SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE | SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE);
}
}
--------------------------------------------------------
But when I used the same code from the windows service application and calling it for every 1 Minute using a System.Timers.Timer class, it is not working(Background is not changing). It is not even throwing any error also.
 
Can any one help me in this please?
 
 
Thanks
Srinivas.
