ALM 11.52 Customizing start_a.jsp not working

I was able to succesfully customize our login image for ALM 11.52 on the index_a.jsp page, however it is not working for the start_a.jsp page.


I changed the images under ProgramData\HP\ALM\webapps\qcbin\images\PC\ to be what I want.  It works like a charm on the index_a.jsp page but not on the start_a.jsp.  As you can see in the below image I am able to change the title of the start_a.jsp page no problem, but not the images.




I had valid image paths and then even tried to change them to something that does not exist to break it.  It still loads the default images.  See my 'View Source' below.

Can anyone please advise?

Please have a look at the thread by @PhilTrostel at https://community.microfocus.com/t5/Quality-Center-ALM-User/How-to-alter-the-ALM-splash-page/td-p/1681686

In ALM 12.60 Patch 1 there is a new feature to customize the ALM Login Window, this is useful e.g. to display messages to the users. Please see the installation guide (Windows: https://admhelp.microfocus.com/alm/en/12.60/pdfs/Install_Windows.pdf); chapter 19 "Customization", section "Customizing the ALM Login Window".
