You may be right. I didn't think much about it until your post.

How do you get windows 10 to install this so I can use it as my default saver (It's pretty!) ? When I right click it, there is no option to install here.

No idea if I can copy it manually somewhere?

Thanks!

Here's a list of directories to put it...

C:\Windows (I don't remember using this directory but it is listed on the web)
C:\Windows\system32
C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (on 64-bit versions of Windows)

Let me know if you have anymore issues. ;)

I will make an installer for it soon. Sorry for the trouble.

Trouble? What trouble?? It's just me being dumb and old as usual. When I don't work on my own code, my brain drops out of its cavity:):)

Your screensaver runs every chance I get:):)

C:\Windows\system32
That turned out to be the magic directory for me. Now I am hoping a naughty Mrs Claus comes out the chimney and says, "You've been a bad boy, come up to my room immediately!

/me just fell out of my chair laughing.

LOL! Glad to hear.

I actually started working on a custom installer. Should have it completed tonight. If you run it, it checks for 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. It also checks to see if the screen saver is already installed. If so, it will allow you to uninstall the screen saver. This will solve any troubles on installation.

LOL! Fangbeast :lol:

I just finished the custom installer. Same download as before. It will install and uninstall the screen saver. The screen saver is now only 333 kb! :D

Enjoy! ;)

No, no, no, real programmers don't need installers (GRIN). We just sometimes need to be told where to shove things:):)

@J. Baker: Does your screensaver run with subsystem "OpenGL" too? I really hate when Win7 switches from Aero to Basic :twisted:
Et cetera is my worst enemy

I didn't think of that. I will test it out in a bit but I don't see why it wouldn't.
