  • Screensaver install problem

    I am using the latest version of Setup Factory and following the instructions as shown in the FAQ and the supplement post for installing and making a scr file the default saver on a Windows desktop, I have this question.

    It appears that Setup Factory writes to the registry, it writes to the System.ini, I have it create a log, so I can verify the actions and yet when I go to the desktop and click properties (after a reboot) and see the "Display" settings, click the Screensaver Tab, it shows none as selected.
    If I scroll down the available screensavers, the screensaver is indeed there it just isn't at the top of the list as it should be, therefore, it doesn't play.

    This is on Windows 98 (although the thought is for all current Windows OS to be available).

    The bottom line, Setup Factory seems to do what it should do, per the FAQ on this subject, but do I have to do something else to make it appear on the Tab listing?

    Thoughts please...

    hum this is something I have been trying to do as well. Install the saver and have the dispaly properties box come up and show the saver and give the option as to making it the current saver without having to reboot. It is possible to do because active media storm and lots of other screen saver makers do it when you distribute the saver via their software.
