How to retain a screen saver in the screen saver list?

Post by yb.. » Sat, 27 Jan 2001 08:52:36


I ran into problem when I try to 'retain' my screen saver in the screen
saver list, here is what happened:
1) I installed my screen saver from my project dir(i.e. the .scr is not
in ...\system32 dir), after installation, it's  ruannable - when I
select it, it operated normally like other existing screen savers
2) If I killed the process (myscr.scr) from the task manager, with
the 'control panel->display->screen saver' window open and my screen
saver selected, then I reopened the  'control panel->display->screen
saver' window, my screen saver was not in the list!
3) That didn't happen to other existing screen saver list - they still
existed even I killed their process like I did to mine in 2). So mine
didn't work normally, or I couldn't retain it.

How can I 'retain' it in the list without moving the .scr file
into ...\system32 dir(it needs components from our project)?

1. Screen saver listing in control panel?

After you program a screen saver, how do you get it to be listed under
the DESKTOP in the CONTROL PANEL?  Even after the new saver is named
in the same format as other savers, it does not appear in the list.

I am posting this for him.
