John’s Background Switcher failing to switch backgrounds? Try this:

JBS isn’t totally down with the whole “Switch User” thing.


If John’s Background Switcher (JBS) is failing to switch backgrounds automatically but can still manually switch them, it may be because the user account it’s running on was logged into after another currently running user account.

I discovered this problem recently on a Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium 64-bit PC on which I’d logged in to a non-admin user account before logging in to my own admin account. JBS started throwing errors. Rebooting the PC and logging in to my admin account first before logging in to the other account fixed the problem.
