Parastream WallGen™ is a valuable addition to any multi-platform development or testing operation. It can quickly generate a custom wallpaper that can help users positively identify a machine and configuration at a glance using text, graphics, and colors. WallGen can generate small "ID stickers" with text and small graphic (click for an example), or full-screen with a grid (click for an example).

WallGen is the tool we use internally in our development and QA departments. It’s a part of our successful formula in creating multiple-platform applications, components, and tools.

Key Benefits

  • Identifies machines and configurations in test and multi-user environments.

You may browse the on-line documentation here. You may also view the Readme file.


WallGen requires a license per user on any number of machines. If you do not install WallGen on a server, no additional licenses are ever needed. If WallGen is installed on a server for access by more than one user, you must purchase additional licenses for the number of users that may use WallGen. Each copy of WallGen comes with one license. If you wish to order WallGen on CD and require more than one license, you may order the additional copies as ESD instead of CD. The entire EULA is available for reading on-line.


There is a free demo available for WallGen. The free demo version is identical to the standard version except that it does not allow you do turn off the built-in Parastream logo in your generated wallpaper. There are no limits to the number of wallpapers that may be generated, and the program does not expire. The licensing of the free demo version basically says that you may freely distribute it as long as you don’t modify it or charge a fee. The entire Demo EULA is available for reading on-line.

  • Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 3.51, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Server 2008 or better.
